Declan McEnerney

DISPATCH: Is an interactive audio and text-based game to give insight into the call to action  “defund the police”.The player is put in the role of an emergency services call dispatcher.  

Dispatch is created to combat the misunderstanding of the phrase "defund the police". This misunderstanding causes people to be instantly turned off from the idea, instead of looking into it. Dispatch is aiming to make this information more palatable and in a more interactive format for people who are not willing/able to do this research themselves. The player's task is to send the correct response to each situation they face. Emergency scenarios range from petty theft to psychotic episodes. The game envisions a future where emergency specific response services replace law enforcement. Dispatch is a javascript based game, which will be played in a browser, making the game accessible to a wide audience.
