If Papers, Please failed to satiate your appetite for difficult decisions, then you may be interested in Double Zero One Zero’s “censorship simulator”, The Westport Independent.

“Throughout the game, you will censor articles, pick out headlines and layout your paper. Your actions will affect the peoples opinion of both the rebels and the Loyalist government,” said Double Zero One Zero’s Pontus Lundén.
Double Zero One Zero also released a trailer which you can view below. Unfortunately, the team hasn’t revealed a release date for their censorship simulator, but we’ll keep you posted when the do.
