Legal, illegal, whatever? Provocative privacy game “Data Dealer” released!
"Data Dealer" is a satirical online game about collecting and selling personal data. Players run all kinds of companies and online ventures - from dating sites and loyalty card systems to search engines and their own social web - and ruthlessly sell private information to clients of all kinds. Their growing data empires have to be defended against various threats, including competing players trying to hack into their databases, complaining citizens, critical media and pesky privacy activists. Data Dealer is a non-profit project, released under a Creative Commons license and based on HTML5 instead of Flash.
