Social game with a conscience Half the Sky launches today

Trying to smack injustice in the face

Within the past year or so, there's been a new crop of social games that, one might say, have a conscience. Their goal isn't so much taking your money as it is encouraging you to be an organ donor or convincing you to give money to charity. Half the Sky Movement: The Game is the latest one in that line.

I mean, it's no Journey, but in terms of trying to use its design and mechanics to accomplish something important like increasing donations to organizations that help distribute vaccines or non-profits that fight sex trafficking, it's pretty awesome.

It's free, obviously, so if you have the time it's definitely worth a quick look. I can't ever think of any instance where a little compassion for others wasn't worth it. Except Kefka. He doesn't deserve anything, ever.
