In #iHunt, I featured a rule. It goes a little something like this:
If you’re a fascist, you’re not welcome to play this game. It’s against the rules. If you’re reading this and thinking, “You just call everyone you disagree with a fascist,” then you’re probably a fascist, or incapable of drawing inferences from context and acknowledging a dangerous political climate that causes the oppressed to be hyperbolic. Don’t play this game. Heal yourself. Grow. Learn. Watch some Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood or something.
It’s gotten a lot of attention, and a few people have added it to their own games as “The Olivia Hill Rule.” You’re welcome to and encouraged to! The text for The Olivia Hill Rule is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike 4.0 license. More on that here. Basically, credit Machine Age Productions, and share the license text similarly (you can’t not do that, because it’s already out there.) You’re also welcome to use the Olivia Hill Rule branding for your cover if you want to wear it proud. You can find that below.
If you use the Olivia Hill rule in your game, let us know! Tag us on Twitter @machineageinc, or email me at OliviaHillWords at Gmail. If you provide a link and a 400×300 banner, I’ll feature your game on this page!
