So, what did Watch Dogs actually have to say about surveillance culture?

With time, Watch Dogs proves to not criticize the mentality of those who have access to our data, but to enable, encourage, and reward that mentality. Information stops being an insightful, humanizing privilege, but something to be exploited. Your ungoverned access to people’s privacy—phones, laptops—and city infrastructure is not presented as a responsibility, but an opportunity.

Off Grid

Off Grid is an adventure, satire and stealth game about a mishap antihero. You play an everyman pencil pusher, who is oblivious to the city’s prying and spying, corporate-sponsored government until a series of dark events unfold.
The contemporary storyline follows real-world events surrounding data privacy, and gameplay utilises unique mechanics that allow you to manipulate the world and people around you with the data they unwittingly leave behind.

Watch Dogs – Digital Shadow

A promotion for the game Watch Dogs which uses your Facebook data to guess your location, your income, and your passwords. It combs through your friends to identify which you interact with more than vice versa (“obsessions”), which interact more with you (“stalkers”), and which tag you a lot, spreading your personal information more widely (“liabilities”).
