In the world of GumBeat, you take the role of a defiant teenage girl who musters up the courage to stand up against the oppressive government.
Bubble gum is outlawed across the city! Anyone spotted chewing gum is severely beaten up. But oh, how unfair it is to prevent citizens to enjoy the sweet taste of bubble gum.
In this fun and lively casual game, blow bubble gum and gather enough supporters to your cause to topple the anti-gum government. Are you up to the task?
GumBeat is a casual Flash game built with the objective of weaving the ideas of political oppression into the heart of gameplay. Commercial games intended for fun rarely deal with the topic of political oppression, but GumBeat seeks to address this topic in a simple, engaging way. By casting the player in the roleof a normal civilian and setting the game in a police state where fun behavior is outlawed, GumBeat seeks to give a fresh take on how simple gameplay can engage with complex ideas.
