The New Yorker
"Play the part of a nefarious data dealer and see our privacy-free future up close. You would probably be shocked to find out how much marketers and companies know about you from the information you put on the Internet. In this new award-winning game, you can see what it’s like to try to grab and monetize people’s private data [...] a fun online game with a serious message"
"Players take on the role of a data broker using a variety of (sometimes nefarious) tactics to profit from an empire of personal data and learn about how their own information is collected and commodified along the way"
