Damnview: Built From Nothing

Damnview: Built From Nothing is an upcoming video game for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC set to release in 2019. It's billed as a social commentary on despair, hostility of capitalism and the need to seek a better future. Characters are a menagerie of anthropomorphic animals - a wolf criminal, an owl priest and many others. As it shows from the trailer footage, the game is set in a ghetto where crime is rampant. The game goes for a retro aesthetic with a top down view and it's expected that you will be performing various sorts of criminal activities to get by in life.

Noteworthy observations include a tweet from the company where one developer is presenting a talk on "How to Distill your Brainwashing Message". Given the themes the game plans to convey, this one really made me think.

What do you think? Is this social commentary going to be heavily politicized and push a certain viewpoint?
