We all know games are a medium like any other, and some can be sublime and surreal art. Subaltern’s new No Pineapple Left Behind offers more evidence that games can talk about anything art can talk about. via Hyperallergic
No Pineapple Left Behind, from Subaltern Games, turns the controversial 2001 No Child Left Behind Act, which connected federal funding in American public schools to standardized test scores, into a bleak management game. You’re a principal attempting to keep your budget afloat, your teachers alert, and your students’ testing high. And you have magic on your side, able to use laser beams to mind control unruly pupils — although abuse your power and they’ll morph into placid, test-taking pineapples.
