Adventures in Morality: An Interactive Case Study
Why do people disagree over core moral values? Why are nations divided by staunch belief systems? Why is cilantro on food either loathed or loved? Like personality-types, people possess different types of sympathy. The differences in sympathy-types is the root cause of all human conflict. Adventures in Morality (AiM) is a 3D interactive sympathy test as well as science fiction narrative. When the game begins, you are asked to accept a research consent form. Once accepted, a brief 1950s educational film provides a more detailed explanation of sympathy-types. From there you are free to explore the surreal world of fireworks, giant dollhouses, and quiz questions. You may also read and listen to the story of of CYBIL, the artificial intelligence who built AiM for an ominous purpose. When playing AiM, keep in mind, there is no "winning" or "losing." Self-discovery is the only prize. You may follow the science fiction narrative, or not. You may answer the quiz questions, or not. There is no right or wrong answer.
