At the Fwd.Us DREAMer hackathon last week, I was tremendously impressed with the team who made #Undoculife. It’s a web-based interactive game, featuring a main character who’s an undocumented immigrant in the US. It challenges the players to see life through the lens of an undocumented person, while also teaching them how to respond to law enforcement and other people that might put them at risk.
Here’s a photolog of their presentation at the DREAMer Hack demo session — with the team who made it (absent another game designer who was remotely hacking) — and some of their screenshots from the demo.
I’m excited to see this scenario-based type of law game come out — even in just a day & a half of hacking — and I’m thrilled to think of the potential for other Lived-Law Games as teaching & awareness tools. I hope to work with them in the future too….
