Storekeeper


2015. Android App; Unity, SILVER Reports v.4.0.7


Description and concept

My father was a storekeeper at a state store belonging to the CIMEX group in Cuba for about 20 years. This allowed me to systematically access the store's account statements and corroborate first-hand the enormous price inflation introduced by the state apparatus in Cuba. This kind of store represents the only place where it is possible to access some essential items in the country. The project consists of a Sokoban-style Game, in which the players manipulate a character made up of values corresponding to the percentage of profit generated in 2015, in the store where my father used to work.
