The Oldest Game

The Oldest Game is a web-based newsgame that explores the complex issue of the legalization of the sex trade in Ontario and Quebec. Drawing inspiration from games such as Budget Hero, in which players learn the parameters of a complex system, and from role-playing games that provoke empathy and identification, “The Oldest Game” focuses on the motivations on the debate over legalized prostitution.” – The Oldest Game
