We Are Chicago
Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux
Number of Players: 1

We Are Chicago is a strikingly authentic game for PC/Mac/Linux that strives to portray the harsh realities associated with growing up on the south side of Chicago.
 
This first person 3D narrative-driven adventure game throws players into the life of Aaron who is only a week away from his high school graduation when suddenly his best friend Robert has stopped showing up to school.
 
As Aaron's world is unraveling around him, it's becoming increasingly difficult for him to protect his family and loved ones among all the turmoil facing the neighborhood.
 
Players will need to uncover what's going on, who Aaron's real friends are, and who they can trust while relying on the community around them to help. They'll explore Aaron's life and relationships to find out the truth and uncover what really matters.
 
Utilizing a myriad of in-depth first person interviews that are interwoven into the game’s story, everything in We Are Chicago was created with intent and purpose. We have worked tirelessly to understand and accurately portray the nuances of the characters’ relationships and struggles while bringing them to life in an interactive gameplay experience.

Inspire Change

Beyond the game itself, we plan to use the game’s voice and a portion of the proceeds from the game to help raise awareness and support non-profit groups who have a mission to help curb violence and provide positive and creative opportunities to people living on Chicago’s south and west side.
 
Above all, we hope that We Are Chicago will create a deeper understanding, motivate and inspire change, and cultivate a larger conversation surrounding the issues of violence and income disparity.
