Attempts at Relevant Gaming in 'My Cotton-Picking Life'

Indie Game Magazine's Meg Stivison thoughtfully discusses 'My Cotton-Picking Life', a new release from GameTheNews.net, a game studio focused on rapid development of topical, headline games. This social awareness game has the player take on the role of a child worker in the cotton fields of Uzbekistan. It’s meant to raise awareness of the plight of child laborers, by challenging players to experience the difficulty and monotony of the situation, Stivison says. (Dev, Industry)
