“CHOICE”: Interactive Online Game Project

“CHOICE” is an interactive online role-playing game (RPG) that invites players to take on the role of school children from low-income families and make situational choices accordingly. By confronting the various scenarios, the player is also encouraged to reflect upon issues relating to one’s material and non-material values. Through the active engagement in the game, it is hoped that the public will come to a better understanding of the problems faced by the protagonists and empathize with this severely neglected group of Hong Kong – a phenomenon resulting from the serious disparity between the rich and the poor in this advanced and affluent cosmopolitan city.
