‘RIOT‘ is a simulator created by Leonard Menchiari, which is based on real world events. Developed for PC, Mac, iOS and Android, it was inspired by recent demonstrations in countries like Egypt and Italy.
The 8-bit style game lets players choose their perspective and experience both sides of a riot, either as the police or the protesters. It includes four main campaigns set in Italy, Greece, Spain and Egypt, with many more unlockable riots set all around the world.
Each scenario has its own background, elements, props, police uniforms, and procedurally generated activists' clothes. Each character can react in unpredictable ways based on realistic elements that happen in each riot.
