This game explores the social dilemma of posting harmful and personal images on social media.

In this game, a high school student was upset with her teacher for giving her a bad grade on a test, and without too much thought, posted a picture of him with the title, "Stingy Steve". Moreover, she posted it to her friends on Snapchat, an app that deletes a post ten seconds after posting it. Unfortunately, the story doesn't end here.

Within those crucial ten seconds, one of Jude's friend's, took a screenshot of the image and re-posted it to a different group of friends on What's App. What she didn't know what that Jonathan, Steve's son, was in that group, and when he saw the post, he immediately reported it to his dad.

You are invited to partake in the hearing that was initiated by the Dean of the school. This hearing aims to conclude who the guilty party is, what will be the punishment, and how to behave in this kind of complex situation.
