The world is in no shortage of riots: it was only a matter of time before someone made a game on the subject, right? Enter RIOT, for iOS and Android.
According to the game’s Indiegogo page, RIOT is a “detailed and polished simulator based on the actions of real riots happening around the world”. As the trailer suggests, the player will be able to interact with both sides of a riot, and it sounds as if politics will be thrown into the mix too.
Riots usually happen for a reason, right? And this is based on real-life events, so the politics part makes sense though no specifics are given. You can, however, see a gay pride flag so that’ll probably be a subject.
Here’s hoping that this game doesn’t just fetishise the violence of riots, though.
Thanks for the tip, Indie Games.
