A country that's polarized is paralyzed. If we want any change in the coming years, we need to find a way to work together. However, you can't just unify people by holding hands and singing Kumbaya. No – rather than ignore or "put aside" our differences, let's use our different perspectives & interests & skills to tackle problems from all possible angles! For us to find common ground, we first need to find common goals.

This is the Common Project project.

Below, you'll find a list of projects, people, organizations, books, talks, movies, articles, and ideas that cross partisan lines to solve The Big Problems we face today. There's many such problems. And we'll need help from all sides.

#Art. Code. Words.

Nicky Case plays with play. They make interactive non-fiction, to help people understand the world, and interactive stories, to help people understand themselves.

It's also been a really long time since they've needed to write a résumé, so they're going to assume this pseudo-third-person biography plus the following stuff shall suffice:



so you wanna make a videogame

that can both educate and entertain

turn a real world system into a game mechanic

systems from science, sociology & economics


Designed & developed by Nicky Case in two-ish days.

Thank you to my playtesters: Amber, Lana, Rio, Sakura.

All code and art dedicated to the public domain.

If you'd like to help me keep making free, open-source playable silliness, please check out my Patreon! Thank you. <3

These are the adorable Polygon People.

They're 50% Triangles, 50% Squares, and 100% slightly biased against each other.

Emphasis on the word slightly. A Polygon would be happy with an even 50/50 split of neighbours of different types, but if less than 33% of their neighbours are like them, they will be unhappy, and want to move somewhere else.
