‘#Notifications’ Demonstrates the Dangers of Social Media

Whether you use it or not, we’re likely all aware of the capacity that social media has to completely blow up in people’s faces. While awesome discussions and friendships are routinely formed via Twitter, there’s also tremendous room for abuse.

As such, Cameron Baker has created an alt game by the name of #Notifications to portray this negative side of social media. It focuses on the life of one Twiddler user who finds themselves suddenly the target of hundreds of strangers. As the days wear on the comments continue to flood in – when does it end?

#Notifications is a short game which can be completed in one sitting. It’s also completely free via download on itch.io.
