Can games change the way people think? One developer thinks so. Breakaway Games has developed a turn-based strategy game called A Force More Powerful: The Game for the PC. In it, you control political leaders who are pitted against various forms of oppressive government. The catch? Instead of guns and guerilla tactics, you are "armed" with options such as letter-writing campaigns and hunger strikes. Its a fascinating concept which fosters a greater understanding of non-violent conflict. Somewhere, Gandhi is smiling.
