Could you live on $8 or $9 dollars an hour? A computer game made by the Urban Ministries of Durham in North Carolina and an advertising firm called McKinney lets you play out life with a low-wage job as a single mom. The objective is to make it a month, juggling getting a job, rent, a place to live, food and coping with the costs of repairs, things for your child, insurance, etc.. Actually a very hard game to play and full of reminders of the difficulties of life on that kind of salary.
Seriously, if you haven’t played before, play it now. If you have played before, play it again. Especially important during this election season.
just playing this game alone made me really stressed and anxious
ALL THE HATER ANONS, PLAY THIS
This game is amazing. Play it, play it, play it! I shared this with a professor who then had her students play it. So real.
I came here for sci-fi comedy and humour, not getting stabbed in the heart and crying
i literally had NO idea what this was in reference to. it was sad on it’s own, but then when I understood that it was in reference to Laika the space dog? it’s like feeling a bullet pass through my heart as I was so passionate about that dog/project. remarkable. once i realized this, i had to rewatch that part of the episode to see the clues i missed and just augh. so stunning. i love this shows.
