    About In a Permanent Save State

    In a Permanent Save State is a cerebral, mobile game which is extremely critical of human rights violations produced by Apple and Foxconn. Upon initial release,

    The game was censored from Apple’s mobile application store. This narrative chronicles the afterlives of seven overworked laborers who committed suicide while building the world’s mobile devices.

    Those who assemble the dreams of this world now have their own at a devastating cost. Controls are discovered through simply tapping. Cognition of the game is gained through experiencing.
