They are moved across boarders, using methods that have become new forms of slavery.

To stop this exploitation in the long run, a key factor is to inform, and prevent in the recipient countries. Find Olena is an interactive story, targeting 15-17 years old boys and girls. In Find Olena you follow Olena's story. From her dream of getting away from Ukraine to expierence the world. To the nightmare situation she ends up in, as a prostitute.

The shorter life of a grandmother.

My grandmother died recently.

I always knew that she had an obsession with plastic bags. But sorting out her house, after she died, just made it crystal clear.

It was like she tried to preserve life, by putting everything in plastic bags. But in the end the bags ended up outliving her. Talking with friends from around the world I realized that this was not a single case. Apparently many grandmothers are obsessed with plastic bags.

What is it about Westerners going East to find themselves?

The entire quest for 'finding yourself' seems like one long ego trip, which is quite ironic when most of the Eastern philosophy talks about eradicating the ego. - It's also quite funny.

The narrative in most of the computer games developed today, are told from a Western, male perspective.

To challenge this tendency we need more women working in the games industry. - Currently only 5% of the workforce in the games industry today are women.

We thought a good place to start would be to motivate, and inspire young teenage girls to develop games – to show them that technology can be creative and fun, and to let them tell their own stories.

120 - A game about immigration

Game Activism makes small, fun games about current political events

120 is made as a reaction to the new 'point-system' in Denmark,

Is made as a reaction to a new ‘green card system’, whose requirements immigrants in Denmark needs to meet, to obtain a permanent residence permit. People that are born in Denmark, by parents who does not have Danish citizenship, but only a permanent residence permit, are also judged by the new system, and might be expelled from the country.

The new point system: The Danish government has passed a law that gives residence permit to immigrants according to a point system. The person in question has to obtain 100 points (and 120 points if you are younger than 24), by meeting a series of requirements. The points are assigned in 5 categories: Education, language abilities, work experience, adjusting ability and age. The system favors those who graduated from a University in a Western country.
