Sweat Life is an experimental art game that tries to express the emotions felt by a sweatshop worker in day to day life. Sweat Life differs from other social commentary games in the more immediate connection the player has to the game, controlling the character directly rather than through instructions or click and drag commands. With this more mainstream style of control, Sweat Life attempts to bring the audience closer and make a deeper connection with the player regarding these emotions and feelings that sweatshop workers go through regularly.
