On the International Day of Education (Jan 24), Amnesty International launched Rights Arcade, a free human rights game app which aims to educate the next generation of human rights defenders. The game is available on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Amnesty.RightsArcade ) and IOS store (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/rights-arcade/id1593637186 ) .
The game’s stories, which are fictionalized experiences inspired by real world events, are driven by a player’s choices. The player gets to play the role and navigate the experiences of the three central characters, making decisions based on their own understanding of human rights and unpacking how human rights concepts apply in daily life.
People around the world will be able to access a collection of three games currently available in four languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Thai and Korean. Rights Arcade will be regularly updated to accommodate learning in more languages, and with new game offerings.
