TriBeCa launches ethical video games

Organisers at film festival have introduced video games as part of the entertainment, and the games come with a twist.

    This year at the TriBeCa film festival, organisers are introducing video games as part of the entertainment.

    Festival goers are to be shown a new breed of socially conscious games that aim to plunge players into a world of ethical decision making. Games like "The Migrant Trail" and  "Papers Please" force players to confront real world issues like immigration and the human cost of migration.
