Revgames is a way for people to combine revolution and game play to break down barriers that normally exist around fear of speaking out. Revgames is about standing up against the larger corporations, local government and politicians in a none threating and non-violent way. Revgames looks to engage people to share, play and express themselves In fun and creative ways, shareing these games with others and building on games to push boundaries.
