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!
