When “good intentions” turn bad, REAL BAD: Sweatshop, the game

This video is the promo trailer for the game Sweatshop, currently just a page holder that asks readers “How far would you go to avoid a fashion disaster?”. Produced by British animation company Littleloud, it is supposed to be an “educational” game but, instead, from the looks of this unfortunate promo, we are presented with a bunch of small brown people running around frantically to the demands of the factory boss. There are also cartoon like Asian slanted eyes and a general vibe of (non White) worker’s ineptitude.

I’d say it’s the perfect game for the little xenophobe in the making.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
