Game 1: The game is about animal rights and it is really interesting because it is done for a cause, specifically stray dogs who are abused and mistreated by humans. The most interesting thing about the game is that it gives you the illusion of talking to a human in general and then it gets more detailed when you answer more questions related to people you can meet in the street. The game made me feel that feeling the street dogs feel on street because they are mistreated by people. There is something that I really want to point out in the game is that these stray dogs may bother you on the street, what you need to do is to stay away from them but not to bother or harm them.
2: I tried the “Sleep-Deprived Mom” game, even for me it wasn’t relevant at all. But I liked the idea of trying the feeling of that poor single mom facing everyday something new with her baby girl. All I wanted to do was to take care of my child and to postpone everything later just to fulfill my child’s needs. I ended up in the end of getting not enough sleep, but at the end I saved my child’s life from getting her feel better and also hanging out together to make her not to feel about her father’s absence.
- The street sweeper game was too powerful that it made me answer most of the questions as I am in the street-cleaner’s shoes. Even that I wasn’t willing to answer these questions in that way, but this is the reality that the creator of the game wanted to reveal it out. All the responses were true and actually reflects the issues that street-sweepers face in Cairo. A thing that I didn’t like in the game is that when I had to choose between getting the anti-depressants medications or not, my health got worse and wasn’t able to go to work and now I’m fired. It is true at some point but the idea of getting me fired must have other steps than getting fired immediately.
- Spent game was interesting even that I lost in the 11th day, but it was worth the experience of having very little amount of money and at the same time you have to fulfill your needs and wants. I liked the way it was created and everything had a shocking answer that continues to the last dollar you had.
- About the BBC game, I picked Egypt as an example, it was annoying and depressing to be in someone else’s shoes. But it gave me the idea of being a refugee in Egypt, got kicked out of his country and trying to save people’s lives and even caring about getting money to provide a living for his family. I enjoyed the game and it also brought many ideas to my digital game that I will do later, I thought of doing something related to refugees or something.
