An explorable explanation of racial segregation and the harm it has on communities.

Developer Description

“This is a story of how harmless choices can make a harmful world….Our cute segregation sim is based off the work of Nobel Prize-winning game theorist, Thomas Schelling. Specifically, his 1971 paper, Dynamic Models of Segregation. We built on top of this, and showed how a small demand for diversity can desegregate a neighborhood. In other words, we gave his model a happy ending. ” – Official game description
