Mobile Games Maker Sends A Message With Amnesty International App

Found via Kotaku Australia


The iOS games studio Mobigame – best known for titles like Edge and Perfect Cell – has teamed up with Amnesty International to publish a game raising money for the human rights advocacy organisation, observing its 50th anniversary this year.

Bulletproof, costing 99 cents on the iTunes App Store, places the player as a political prisoner in front of a vaguely North Korean firing squad. The gameplay objective is to deflect incoming shots by touching on green crosshairs indicating their target. The frequency and difficulty of the volleys increases with each round.

Mobigame and Amnesty International say the app is meant to raise awareness of Amnesty International’s mission and, of course, proceeds from its sale contribute to that.

Interesting concept given the interaction between social conscience and technology though Im not sure about the concept or aim of the game and how it really ties into AI's mandate or technique for freeing prisoners of conscience.
