Often referred to as Antifa simulator comes publisher Merge Games and developer IV Productions’ Riot – Civil Unrest. The newly released PC game for GOG and Steam Early Access lets you assume various types of civilian or cop in brutal or peaceful confrontations.
Riot – Civil Unrest puts the player front-and-center in a simulator setup that oversees two factions battling it out. Controlling one of the two factions, which happen to be civilians or riot officers, allows you to be an extremist or rational group in a fractious dispute.
That’s right, the riot simulator places the player right in the heart of clashes based on real life riot disputes. These fractious clashes feature campaigns such as: Spain’s Indignados, Egypt’s Arab Spring, Greece’s Keratea, and Italy’s NoTAV uproar.
Players can take sides in any of the above campaigns, featuring up to 17 single level scenarios that also include Rome, Oakland, Paris, London, and Ukraine will be present in the game.
The official description explaining what Riot – Civil Unrest has to offer lies below:
“As civil crisis deepens and inequality tears the very fabric of society the discontentment of the masses manifests itself in violent public disturbances and civil disorder. Play as the police or the angry horde as RIOT – Civil Unrest places you in some of the world’s most fractious disputes.”
