Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

If you packed your bags and headed home after the Occupy Phoenix rally, you can join the forces again, virtually, with the help of Occupy the Game. 

The website, dedicated to sharing news about the national movement's progress and demands, revealed an online, Tetris/Pong-like game where an Occupy protester must dodge items being tossed into the crowd by a group of police.  

No fancy moves required to win this protest. To succeed, you must simply collect eight of each of the good items (bottled water, US Constitution pamphlet, and a dollar bill) and avoid being hit by two of each of the bad items (flash grenade, bean bag, or a round of tear gas). 

The game ends in either your right to raise your sign higher -- or your arrest. Test your luck, join the forces, and accomplish absolutely nothing on the Occupy the Game website

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
