Kick Ass in Chicago’s South Side – Even in a Wheelchair.

One of the endless joys of video gaming for the disabled community is the ability to inhabit a world where you can be powerful regardless of the challenges you face in everyday life.  If you happen to live in the Midwest you know just how unruly the South Side of Chicago can be.  When you enter this gaming world being developed in Ravenswood is titled “Culture Shock Games: We Are Chicago.”you see Chicago through the eyes of high school senior Aaron, who lives on the South Side with his mom and sister.

Instead of the video game encouraging violence, like many often do, this one teaches you to navigate life in a pretty rough neighborhood.

Scenes include things that people living there encounter daily – threat by gun in the school hallway, struggles of finding a job, family dinners interrupted by gunfire.

Portions of the games proceeds will go to groups helping South and West Siders.

A Twitter post revealed the game will previewed at this weekend’s Indie Mega Booth expo in Seattle.
