The Curfew's Curfew Is Lifted


The Curfew, a free educational online game from Channel 4, launches today in Britain. The narrative-led investigative puzzle game is designed to teach political awareness, documenting as it does a near-future society dominated by an oppressive government, and asking the player to make decisions that reflect their own political opinions and meaningfully affect other characters in the world.

The Curfew is developed by LittleLoud and written by Kieron Gillen, a highly-respected international game critic, journalist and Marvel writer who AAAAARGH NO I CAN'T DO THIS AAAAAAAAARGH.

Kieron's written a game, love 'im. I know, our Kieron - he wrote words and everything, and they weren't even about Iceman throwing an icicle at The Thing's the solar plexus. Politics! Drama! Intrigue! Moral dilemmas! Clever Kieron! It's out now. Go play it.

Kieron has put more details into the comments thread below.
