#Notifications is a short inditement of cyber bullying and the rather disturbing mob mentality that can occur via social media.
Starting off rather harmlessly, you simply go about your day, pulling up your phone, checking your messages and sending out the occasional tweet (although the game calls them twiddles). Things take a turn for the worst though as you send out a tweet that causes a backlash. Insults range from the rudimentary ‘F**k Off’ to the rather more inventive ‘I Hope You Get Raped By A Group Of Wild Gorillas’, and all of them are directed squarely at you.
It basically gives you a taste of what it’s like to be Phil Fish or any of the other high profile backlashes, and it’s really not a pleasant experience. Just reading the made up messages in #Notifications is unsettling, sure you can try and ignore them, but you know they’re all there just waiting to be read. It’s a surprisingly powerful experience, that delivers a simple message – think before you send, there’s a human being on the other end of that tweet, and it could very easily be you.
