The FBI Made A Game About Violent Extremism Starring a Sheep

The FBI has created a game that is supposed to make teenagers aware of distorted logic that can lead to violent extremism. You control a bighorn sheep that has to avoid blocks and cross finish lines.

The Slippery Slope to Violent Extremism is a bizarre game that rewards players with examples of distorted logic upon finishing levels (via Kotaku). It’s a part of the FBI’s “Don’t Be A Puppet” website that tries to teach teenagers about violent extremism and how to avoid it.

You can check out the website’s description below:

“The site doesn’t refute violent extremist beliefs point by point or discuss matters of faith or politics. Instead, it makes teens aware of the destructive reality of various forms of violent extremism, including hateful attacks based on race, religion, or other factors. Through its Don’t Be a Puppet theme, the program encourages teens to think for themselves and display a healthy skepticism if they come across anyone who appears to be advocating extremist violence.”

The Slippery Slope game can be found in the Blame section of the website or at this link here. It’s six levels long, but even if you lose all your lives, you’ll still get to see five different pieces of distorted logic.
