DescriptionUnsavory is a mobile game designed to put the player in the precarious position of choosing between their health and their financial wellbeing. Like other activist games, the intention is to create awareness and empathy around an issue, paid sick leave, that is best understood as a system. Additionally, the game seeks to be a catalyst for change by embedding a social media campaign into gameplay.
