America recently ranked 17th in the world for Freedom of The Press. The news media is a corporate entity - and like most corporations, they lie to you.

Wow

That was really good. I thought it would've been interesting if the game had multiple paths, where you can either end up like a fat cat mainstream journalist or a "fringe" journalist who never holds the punches and becomes demonized by the corporate media. Despite the lack of real choixes, it was an excellent game, I loved the names like "Stacy Quo" and the guy whose name sounded like Ari Fleishcer (sp?), and the way you can see "Virtual Journalist"'s conciences collapsing just by looking at his face throughout the game. And the movie at the end, absolutely excellent. This is the second game I've played that gets a real world point across, and the first I've played that intertwines that point with the game play.

Definitely an inspiration, and I can only hope to make a game like this one that handles the issues as well as you have.

I like the animations that make people think.

Yes. This really made me appreciate the fact that I live in the country that has the top rank. I can't even imagine what kind of crap they write over there.

Absolutely truthful

Although most recently, the US's rating was dropped to 44th. If anyone ever doubts what he's saying is true, just Google "freedom of the press", or "corporate ownership of media".

Oh my gosh.

You are so right. I love that song at the end. "how can the newscasters not cry when they read the news of people dying" i wonder that too. My theory is that might be robots.

But seriosly, that ending was so right plus i like how you made it look like we have options but really we all have to do what the big man says. Those pics were great. Well done.
