Intent

The self-immolation protests by Tibetans in China have been occurring since 2009. 148 people have been confirmed to have died as a result. I believe everyone should know that this is happening, look it up! Try to consider both sides and remain objective.

This is so intense and impactful... the fact that the information is presented in an interactive format, with the player getting to participate in events and make choices about what to do, makes it feel so much more personal than just hearing about events on the news. Thank you, this taught me a lot about the current situation in Tibet!
