The Rejected: Censorship of Social Impact Games
Games that tackle controversial issues have a giant chip on their shoulder: censorship. Whether a game is banned by a distributor or pulled by a sponsor, the effects can be chilling. This panel will discuss games that broached topics deemed unacceptable for consumption with a mixture of first hand accounts and perspectives on using games as means of persuasion.
Moderator: Clay Ewing
Panelists: Ian Bogost, Tomas Rawlings (Endgame:Syria), Alex Jansen (Pipe Trouble), Brian Crecente
