A small team of Italian developers are working on a riot simulator (RIOT) based on worldwide events. Leonard Menchiari heads the Indiegogo project that will target iOS and Android devices first, with eventually PC and Mac ports following.
"The main purpose of this project is to create a game that will get people to be interactive with two opposing forces during clashes between rioters and police while showing the moral aspects and viewpoints of both sides," the campaign states.
The campaign has raised $1,000 of its $15,000 flexible funding goal. The developers says they will use the funding for software, licenses, housing the developers together, and travel to observe "the various riots and manifestations happening in our world today."
Those interested can support RIOT via Indiegogo.
