As a Hispanic trans male I liked this game and think that it helps portray what may happen in real life according to research and data. Accurate representation of wage gap and income distribution according to race and gender.
Let's Do Life is a game where you experience the challenge of finding success in America. The catch is you'll have to walk in the shoes of a hidden randomized demographic.
Created for the 2017 Social Justice Game Jam.

Thank you so much! :) We tried our best to find the most accurate statistics that were available to us.
This was hardly a game. It was just collectivist Propoganda.
Given the scope and topic of the game jam, they accomplished quite a heavy workload in terms of accurate research and logistical information gathering that helped highlight a lot of useful and undermined data that persists within our community today. Kudos to them for achieving so much in barely a weekend!
