Sea Eye: Schlepperkönig

April 05, 2017Filed under Online and Public Interest, NGO

Five thousand people have drowned in 2016 in the Mediterranean Sea while fleeing their countries, but this horror is not taken seriously anymore among young europeans. We announced a game about the drama in the Mediterranean Sea. We promoted the game called 'Schlepperkönig' (king of the human trafficker) on Facebook. This caused enormous outrage, Austria's biggest newspapers reported. German and Swiss newspapers also hopped on the train. When the attention reached its peak, we showed the real scandal: The fact that a game causes more disgust than 5,000 drowned.

No game is more brutal than reality.
