I had a dream that I played a 16-bit videogame called “Batman: Detroit”.

According to the scrolling text as the game started, the game takes place after the last job leaves Detroit. There is much social unrest. As Batman, it is your job to protect the citizens from the police, while they build an alternative economy.

You have to pay special attention to protect the minorities, because the police will target them specifically. The police normally just walk around the screen clubbing anybody who comes in contact with them, but whenever there’s a minority, the police will run toward them. The early levels are among mostly white people, but the later levels have more minorities so it’s harder.

After I beat the first level, there was a cut-scene where Batman promised an activist to help protect the people at the US Social Forum.

Economic troubles, racism, and social unrest are a lot more fun in videogames.
