“As you win, democracy loses…”

Gerrymander Madness: The Anti-Democracy VR Game is designed to demonstrate how politicians can game the system of voting districts, no matter their party.

Gerrymander Madness places gamers into a fictional North Carolina legislator’s office and allows them to manipulate the districts of a state map to gain political advantage for either the red or blue party. Players score points as they gain control of districts and disenfranchise voters of the opposing party.

Durham-based software developers CrossComm designed the game in partnership with the Greensboro History Museum for the Project Democracy 20/20 initiative.
