Dead Ends is out

Right, so that’s the rest of today written off. We’re off to play Dead Ends – a video game made for Channel 4 by RollingSound with the involvement of lots of young people in London.

As the Guardian reports:

Channel 4 News anchor Jon Snow is making his computer game debut in support of the broadcaster’s Disarming Britain season examining the effect of gun and knife crime on Britain’s streets.

An animated Snow features in the scene of a violent crime in the online game, which is called Dead Ends and was specially commissioned by Channel 4 to raise awareness of the dangers and consequences of street crime.

The game which went live yesterday centres on a new gang recruit called Keith Wilcox and a police detective investigating a gang killing.

Dead Ends involves interrogating witnesses, chasing suspects, passing gang initiation tests and navigating dangerous streets.

Exciting stuff. Get the game here – but we warned, it’s a 200MB download so you’ll need a broadband internet connection.
