The Cat In The Hijab


A cat wearing a hijab (a headscarf) boards the subway on her daily commute. What interactions await her over the course of her commute, and how does she react to them?

This is a short-form point and click game made in 1 week for #ResistJam, and briefly explores the topics of diversity, inclusiveness, tolerance, racism, bigotry, sexism, Islamophobia, and homophobia.

Urban subways are a petri-dish of society. Diverse elements are forced into a confined space. This game explores what it is like to be on the receiving end of hate speech, and asks the question of what do we do when hate speech happens to us and to others.
