    ShaninSpangler's 1979 Revolution: Black Friday (PC)

    [September 30, 2018 06:06:43 PM]
    On the third time playing this game, I found it interesting that the creators made a choice-based game of of the Iranian revolution. I wished that as a player, you would have more control over the game, but the game was made to show the revolution from one man's perspective and for it to play out similarly for all players. In the 10th chapter of the game, you go to the movie theater were many people were killed but is now the headquarters for the protesters. You are then suspected for being a spy and attacking the protest leader and have to accuse someone else which is a tough ethical decision. Without clear knowledge of any of the character you have to accuse someone of murder to try to keep yourself safe. This man is killed and you are interrogated for it and if you don't do as they say, your brother is electrocuted. This game focuses heavily on sacrifice for freedom and others.

    I started off this playthrough on chapter 4 which introduced me to the protest leaders and how they plan to fight with non-violence. However shortly into their speech, soldiers came to arrest them and the protest turned violent with rocks getting thrown at the soldiers and the main spokesperson had glass shattered all over him. While going through the city and the protest, the player took a lot of pictures of the streets. I found this interesting cause when I took these pictures it showed what the game looked like compares to actual pictures of the revolution and gave some more context of the image. I liked how much power being a photography had on the main character, it puts himself as a target but it showed the truth from the inside of the revolution.

    I found the first thirty minutes of this game a little frustrating but also intriguing. I knew very little about the Iranian revolution and about the Iranian government. When I starting getting into the game I wanted to make all the wrong decisions and the worst options I was given, however I learned quickly that making these choices actually lead them to kill me, which I didn't like at first but it showed the game would punish me for my actions. The game leaves you with a lot to learn and for most of the choices you make, the consequences are unknown. When being interrogated, I wasn't sure just how much my answers mattered but I still wanted to refuse to do anything asked of me but got killed for it. I then had to restart and even making different decisions I was treated nearly the same which was disappointing. I also got to meet up with an old friend who helped explain a bit of the revolution while also showing the two sides, violent and non-violent. He is afraid that they will never get along and the revolution will crumble.
