Research & Creation

Agency is a single-player text-based game about being a government Inspector, inspired by one of the jam games made earlier on for the incubator, Welcome, Inspector. Built using Twine, the game explores the relationship between morality and necessity, as well as structures of power. Inspired by games such as Papers, Please and The Walking Dead, the creators believe that games offer a uniquely effective means of exploring this sort of moral dilemma, as players are forced to deal with the consequences of their own actions.
