#Tax Evaders: the #Occupy Inspired Video Game

This is just awesome. Tax Evaders is a game that’s retro and modeled after the Atari Version of “Space Invaders” – except in this game, you’re fending off the evil corporations. I’m not really into video games.  I probably play games about three times a year. But being an angry, radical progressive type 🙂 I felt I should give this game a shot.

I played it twice the first day, and I just went back to play again before I wrote this blog entry. It’s too much fun, and I fell in love with the concept of “gaming for good.”

Tax Evaders isn’t just a game — it’s an educational tool. It’s a reminder of the core ideals that started the Occupy Movement – that 99% of the country has struggles caused by the top 1%, who do not. Our voices should be louder because we ARE the people. Video games are a great way to spread this kind of message.
