Between the years 2030-2050, there will be an estimated 250,000 people dying each year because of climate change. Some experts have stressed that this is a conservative estimate, and that the deaths are already occurring today. So who should be held accountable for the hundred thousands of lives lost? Rear Windows is a (mass) murder mystery game where you can have a stab at this question. Play and attempt to find the culprit of this heinous crime.
The game shows that the epoch of Anthropocene cannot be paused simply by reducing mobility such as the effect of COVID-19 restrictions. The logic of capitalism and class divisions in our society is at the root of the climate crisis which cannot be done away without radical action.
