“"Most dystopian games are set in an already-terrible world, but this game is based on how our world is slowly becoming a terrible one. What should really scare people is that the events described in this game are happening around us all the time. Hold on... could someone really be spying on you?"”

“"Poor in gameplay but rich in meaning. So, I call this game a piece of interactive literary fiction, or interactive social science fiction."”

“"This game might not help you relax, but it can certainly make you think better."”

About This Game

"Why would the government waste their time and money spying on an innocent nobody like me?" Most people asked themselves something like this when the PRISM program was exposed in 2013. Indeed, the government probably has neither the interest nor the manpower to monitor everyone. But what about AI agents?

You can only see what AI allows you to see.

Even before online platforms give your privacy to the NSA, what can it do with private information?

Personalized customization. 

You can see Big Brother Is Shaping You on your Steam home page while others can't because Steam's AI speculates that you might like this game based on your play history and purchasing habits.

Your news feed features articles related to offline games that others don't see.

On shopping websites, you see ads for video game consoles where others see sneaker ads. 

These days, it's hard to find a site that doesn't feature some degree of personalized customization. Now everyone sees the world differently.

When everything you see is determined by an AI, do you think it will customize your experience based on your needs... or will the things you see be chosen by a hidden agenda?

Will news platforms intentionally hide critical comments from you?

When you search for a product on a shopping platform, what items do algorithms want you to buy – and how will search results be arranged to maximize the chance you make a purchase?

Do you use search engines?

Do search engines really list all the relevant results?

How do they determine the order to display them in?

Couldn't they bury something interesting after the first 100 pages of results?

Do intelligent ad blockers only block ads?

Do intelligent news filters only filter out falsehoods?


So when user data from all online platforms is given to the NSA, what could they do with it using AI?

Big Brother Is Shaping discusses all of these issues: how your data is collected, how it is analyzed, and how this can affect you.

The game currently takes 30 minutes to an hour to play, and more content could be added in the future depending on player feedback.
