Silence is a text adventure that will help bring awareness to human trafficking by allowing users to interact with the realities of human trafficking. A text adventure is an interactive story game where the choices you make affect the outcome of the game.
It presents vital information about how to spot the signs of human trafficking and the horrors that a human trafficking victim experiences. Silence includes 4 storylines from a range of perspectives, including those of a victim, a teacher, a gas station attendant, and a person shopping at the mall. Silence allows users to roleplay a human trafficking situation so that if they encounter one in real life, they don’t have to rely on theory or ignore it because they don’t know what to do.
Human trafficking is a serious problem in the world. Over one million people are trafficked annually and it happens in every part of the world. Even more problematic is the lack of awareness and understanding that the majority of the public has about human trafficking.
We are addressing this problem by creating realistic situation and we pit it in 4 different P.O.V's. We want to show people how to recognize the signs and how to detect that particular situation.
We faced many challenges while working on this project. One of the challenges we faced occurred when coding the program. Code is very sensitive to syntax errors so we had to be careful we didn’t accidentally type something wrong.
