My First Game

My First Game

My first game is now live! Check out The Integration Game on itch.io.

Experience the first interactions any immigrant goes through with the Finnish government. Find out if you qualify for integration courses! Or maybe you're already integrated! Just don't piss off the bureaucrat otherwise you'll have your benefits revoked. And don't ask to learn Swedish, Finland's other national language.

EU Migrants, students, refugees, asylum seekers and those coming to Finland to join their partners all experience the integration process to some degree. Few receive support, some don't. This game is not a 100% accurate depiction of the process or the factors determining who gets to take an integration course, merely a demonstration of what immigrants experience.

This game was created for 1-bit Clicker Jam by an actual immigrant, in Finland. It can also be found on the Interactive Fiction Database.

For more information about what it's like to integrate in Finland check out the podcast I produced for Kommunförbundet on SoundCloud.

More to come in the future.
