Thoughtcrime is a literary game designed for use in secondary literature classes reading the novel 1984. Played in a virtual world that brings the totalitarian regime of Big Brother to life, Thoughtcrime pits players against each other in a subtle struggle for survival.

Thoughtcrime may be played with small or large classes, from school or home computers with Internet connections. Played over the Web in real time, a game of Thoughtcrime may begin at school but extend well beyond school hours. The game is currently being played in the Literary Worlds enCore MOO.

This Web site was developed to support Thoughtcrime. The video below explains how to set up and run your own game. If you are interested in playing or would like more information, please contact Robert Rozema at Grand Valley State University.
