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 Behindfrom 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.
