A Game About Surviving The Seattle Housing Crisis
Rent Hike is a game that explores life as a renter in Seattle, teaches landlord/tenant law, and uncovers the pitfalls of living in a gentrifying city.
Rent Hike uses a multiple layer system of cause/effect, scenarios with a choice/outcome dynamic, while also measuring player/character emotional states. This is very difficult to explain so we’ve included an Excel worksheet to show how our system works. Please take a peek. Don’t have excel? Download a viewer for free?
