We collaborated with WAMU 88.5, a local public radio station, to create a narrative-driven game about the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s multi-year SafeTrack initiative. Players experience the “metropocalypse” from the perspective of a service worker who relies on the metro.
This game utilized original reporting to create a composite profile of a metro rider in the service industry. Research of D.C. area expenses, such as child care and the cost of an Uber, were researched and included in the game.

In addition to the game, JoLT professional fellow Maggie Farley collaborated with WAMU to create an original audio story around Metro’s SafeTrack project.
