Digital agency Littleloud and Channel 4 are teaming up again (you might remember their previous collaboration The Curfew) for Sweatshop an online strategy game that's sure to make you feel like a jerk, as you play the manager of a sweatshop producing designer clothes for the UK s high-street stores.

Despite its appalling premise, it looks like a lighthearted affair with graphics by the esteemed Gary Lucken (Army of Trolls) and a Tower Defense mechanic that challenges you to balance the demands of your Western clients with the welfare of the children slaving away in your sweatshop.

"Should you hire a fire officer to prevent the risk of workers dying horribly in an industrial blaze or pack them in to get the job done? Should you train workers to make them more efficient and satisfied or fire them when they lose a limb in an industrial accident?

How do you motivate workers: with generous treats and toilet breaks or with an iron fist, long hours and verbal abuse? Maybe you just want to buy a bunch of robots to do the job instead, forcing your human workforce into deeper poverty.

As the player journeys through the game, the story of the characters evolve and the sweatshop grows, moving into ever new larger premises with all the complications of management this entails."

You should be able to play Sweatshop, and learn all about the unsavory truths behind the fast fashion industry and the sweatshop system, at this site soon.
