A flash game with a thought provoking “gray” message

Game_Gray_intuitiongamesFor almost a year, I’ve spent much of my gaming time at Kongregate that I questioned, for a little while, my identity as a gamer. Perhaps I’m not a gamer anymore in the eyes of other gamers or perhaps I’m a different type of gamer.

Today, a game called “Gray” caught my attention when I felt like going for a little run on Canabalt. The game is at first confusing, all I could do is follow the game’s instructions and converted “white” rioters into “black” rioters. But then, my character suddenly seem to convert himself from black to white and I continued the process of converting rioters to “my” side,  which is how I interpret it as such.

I will stop at this point, I’ve given enough spoilers.  I recommend playing this game and when it ends I am sure that it leaves a thought provoking message about an age-old human problem. You can visit their forums and read what others think about this game’s message. This may seem like a viable research project in the future.

The link to this game is here. This game is developed by Intuition Games.

  1. Hmm. The most obvious message is that nobody understands the middle ground, but that plainly isn’t true. Theistic evolution is one example.
