Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

EL BARRIO, EAST HARLEM - NEW YORK.

Welcome to the community board meeting. This meeting is held in English, but a majority of the local community are not native speakers. That's where you come in. In the given time limit, you will need to interpret what the board says for the crowd. If you make the right choices, you can mobilize the community.

Nice presentation. The mechanics seem to lack a bit of polish and the story only has two player choices, but it was interesting to read the text anyway. It'd be nice if on repeat playthroughs you can make the text appear faster or skip it, and make it respond to mouse clicks a bit better (maybe a mouseover visual so you know you're clicking the right spot.) I like how no matter what the board says they're wrong, that certainly made the music fit the mood created by that.

The tension comes across through the music and character animations. Everyone looking pissed off and impatient, either tapping their feet or heaving their shoulders.

An interpreter ideally would make a neutral, literal translation, but this game makes you think about how that's not really possible.
