Far Few Giants is back with the third entry, The Change Architect, in The Sacrifices series that features a choice-driven protest simulator. This entry, similar to the previous two, is presented in a short narrative visual novel format.
In The Change Architect, players are put in director’s chair of an ongoing protest where they play the role of activist Jemima. Watching from above in a London apartment building, the player can send messages to the supporters on the ground. It is left up to the player to keep the protestors and other coordinators safe during a police maneuver, while not compromising the cause.
The Change Architect is our most ambitious story to date. Made over just the past month, it’s tied inextricably to real-world events such as the US election and the unrest we’ve seen across the UK and in Hong Kong.Antony de Fault, Director of Far Few Giants
