Divide Et Impera is a game where you interact with a connected group of diverse people initially in good relations between them; by using hate speech in various forms you try to bring about division and hostility, finally separating the group in factions. Through manipulation of a simulated small community , the gamer can be confronted with and made aware of actual mechanisms used to manipulate people in social media. Adolescents can learn this way to be more critical about the sources and content of information they find in social media.
The game has been designed and developed by Mauro Vanetti (independent game developer), and Pino Panzarella and Pietro Polsinelli from Open Lab.
