Data Dealer, the new game about digital privacy and online
surveillance (nonprofit, under CC)
We've been working hard on our new game, and have recently released
the first English version: it's based on extensive research and offers
a simple but important perspective on all the issues of personal data
and surveillance currently playing out in the media in the NSA/Snowden
fiasco. Two years in the making, we have been mentioned in ProPublica,
Fast Company, Guardian, Le Monde and recently won the Games of Change
Award in NYC. We've also been featured by Open Rights Group, Bits of
Freedom, Bruce Sterling and many more. A project like this isn't free
to create, so we've launched a Kickstarter to raise cash. What we now
need is publicity-- we need help in spreading the word.
DATA DEALER: LEGAL? ILLEGAL? WHATEVER.
What is Data Dealer? It's the new hilarious and clever online game
about personal data & privacy. Data Dealer is a serious/edu/fun
browser game about running your own Smoogle & Tracebook, collecting
and selling personal data, tracking people and surveillance. Call it a
bastard offspring of certain shiny 2010 Facebook Games and the 1990 TV
simulation game Mad TV, reborn with the souls of South Park and Bruce
Schneier. Support them on kickstarter!
