People Power is about politics, about strategy and about social change. As a leader of a popular movement you fight against tough adversaries who control the police, the army and bureaucracy, even the media. The only weapon in your hand is your strategic skill and ingenuity.
But People Power is more than just a game. It’s an opportunity to join a community of others who want to learn about civil resistance and nonviolent strategies. The game allows you to design and play your own custom scenarios by using a Scenario Builder (available on August 9, 2010). Everyone can design scenarios and post them on a forum, available to the whole People Power community, where you can exchange ideas with other players and scenario writers.
