A Walk Home

WARNING: This game contains depictions of catcalling, harassment, and the frightening experience of walking home alone in the dark, which some players may find distressing. 1 in 2 women and 1 in 7 men feel unsafe walking alone after dark along a quiet street near to their home in the UK (Office for National Statistics 2021) Nobody should have to feel unsafe walking home or experience street harassment. Created for the Global Game Jam 2022 (theme: duality), A Walk Home intends to portray what it is like to walk home alone while being subjected to street harassment, with the aim to raise awareness and educate those who may not have experienced this, so that they may gain an understanding of how frightening it can be.
