People Power: The Game of Civil Resistance

SUMMARY

A serious simulation tool based on historical and political models.

RELEASE DATE 01.01.2010

Synopsis

A single-player, turn-based game, People Power is a serious simulation tool, based on historical and political models.  The player is the leader of a popular nonviolent movement fighting against corruption, occupation, or dictatorship, or struggling for minority rights.  There are no traditional weapons available—just the player’s strategic skill and ingenuity.  The player decides on actions to take and the game’s artificial intelligence responds with how a typical oppressor would react.

People Power also comes with a scenario builder, an app that allows you to translate your own struggle or campaign into one that can be played out on the monitor before you take it to the streets.
