The Creator’s Vision

Leonard Menchiari, the creator of Riot: Civil Unrest, was inspired by his own experiences at the NoTAV protests. The game is his platform for sharing the stories and emotions associated with these intense events. It delivers potent questions without easy answers:

  • What drives a crowd to such anger and violence?
  • How does a police officer feel amidst the chaos?

By offering perspectives from both sides of the barricades, Riot: Civil Unrest challenges players to consider the complexities of social upheaval where there are rarely clear-cut villains or heroes.

Choose Your Side: Police or Rioters

As a player, you have the power to control the action from two distinct perspectives:

Play as the Police:

  • Utilize a variety of crowd-control tactics ranging from reserved to aggressive.
  • Direct Assault, Tactical, and Ballistic squads.
  • Deploy police trucks, water cannons, tanks, and choose between smoke grenades, rubber bullets, and live ammunition.

Play as the Rioters:

  • Guide both armed and passive Rioters, as well as Journalists.
  • Either incite rage to provoke aggressive action or strategically calm the situation.
  • Confront authorities with improvised weapons like Molotov cocktails, fireworks, and more, while wielding the power of the media.

Diverse Game Modes

Engage in varying gameplay experiences through multiple modes:

  • Sixteen campaign levels over four scenarios.
  • Play both sides: see the narrative unfold from each perspective with thirty two levels as Rioters or Police.
  • Single-player mode: face off against AI opponents.
  • Versus mode: join or compete against friends or AI.

Uncover the reality of civil unrest, make your choices, and draw your conclusions in Riot: Civil Unrest for the PS4.
