“Dot’s Home” is a new video game about how housing inequality in the U.S. has affected BIPOC communities.

Jan 18 2022

Dot’s Home is a new video game about how housing inequality in the U.S. has affected BIPOC communities. YPulse’s causes / charity and activism research found that 38% of 13-39-year-old BIPOC consumers are passionate about social causes / issues related to the economy, while our gaming research found that the majority of BIPOC consumers wish video games had more diverse characters and strong female lead characters. Now, a new choose-your-own-adventure video game is educating players about social economic issues that have affected BIPOC communities. Created by Rise-Home Stories Project, an organization made up of BIPOC organizers including housing justice advocates, writers, filmmakers, journalists, and game designers, Dot’s Home centers on the fictional protagonist of Dorothea “Dot” Hawkins, who is sent back in time through her family’s history, and has to make crucial housing decisions in the ‘50s, ‘90s, and 2000s. Along the way, she discovers how prevailing systems within housing authorities have controlled how many BIPOC communities live in the country. The purpose of the game is to highlight significant moments in history that affected housing for Black and Brown families, like the Great Migration, urban renewal, and the foreclosure crisis. The game was released at the end of last year and is free to play on Steam, Itch.io, Google Play, and the App Store. (KotakuBloomberg)
