Change Lives: Do Nothing

This train driving simulator perfectly captures the simmering resentment of the menial worker…

Behold the shining glory of this glossy baton of power! The power to stop a heaving hulk racing away with its mindless commuters. But more than that! More than that, the power to do nothing, to let the brake lever glimmer away unstoppingly, as unengaged with its raison d’etre as those salarypeople sheeping to work. The power to do nothing, and to permit the rush of the ton-on-ton iron bolt, driven by hope, hope bursting aflame at the first sharp turn of reality.

Goodbye, salarypeople! Trainloads like you conjured and extinguished at the drop of my coin…

To enjoy Densha de GO! you need to use your imagination.
