please tell me this is NOT a real game.

I'm afraid it is, my friend. Or at least it will be in September. I believe the developer's intention is to show that slavery was terrible, but I'm just not sure if slave Tetris will evoke more sympathy or humor.

it just seems to me..........and maybe I'm wrong - but, a game about slavery (for any reason) feels wrong. smh

Great.. More ammo for anti-game activists. Get this shit out of the industry

While this idea sounds stupid, why should we get this out of the industry? Heck, Key & Peele can use the background of chattel slavery for a comedic sketch but games can't touch the issue in a comedic fashion (intentionally or unintentionally)?

This is the result of any art form in a society that believes in free speech.

Here come the haters dictating. Day 1 just for that and to support freedom to have controversial games.

That looks pretty bad.

I'm not talking about the slavery part. I'm just saying it looks like a bad game to me in my opinion

From the trailer, that I have seen imo it does not look as offensive as I thought it would be. Reading more into its trying to be as informative and educational to young people, and interactive in way a that's not too dark or derogatory. For me being a black person I'm ok with this, and I might even consider purchasing it, as it looks like a god interesting take on presenting a piece of history of the past.
