Description: First created for the Social Justice Game Jam, this VR experience is about a teenager who has encountered some hardship, and now is living on a fishing boat. Every day they wake up and sort fish to pay off their debts. Gameplay focuses on sorting fish into buckets. Some fish are worth more than others, but inside your tiny room, you can’t control what will be available to sort. The whole experience lasts about 30 minutes.
Review: I’m not sure what kind of political message or social injustice message ‘Indentured Servant’ was trying to get across, but it failed miserably. You don’t end up feeling sorry for the teenager sorting the fish, you just feel angry with yourself for wasting your own time downloading the experience. It looks like crap, is utterly pointless and misses the one thing it was trying to do and that brings attention to something that happens to young teenagers from certain countries all the time. The only thing this app is is a waste of time for all involved.
