During the game each player selects a role to play. In Footsteps in India these roles include a:

    – Farmer finally enjoying the freedom of not having to sell his produce to the government, but now being able to sell them as part of the e-choupel.

– Street Vendor whose business of selling water to pedestrians and tourists is thriving due to the hot summer months.

– Houseworker who spends more than an hour on the bus each way to work.

– Industrial Worker whose work in a mill is dangerous and they are exposed to poisonous gases that cause their tongues to become numb.

– Administrator who has been passed over for promotion for a third time in favor of younger employees with less experience but with connections in upper management.

Many of us living in developed countries have no concrete idea of how the other half lives. Even those living in depressed areas of our own country have it so much better than many living in emerging market countries.

Footsteps gives players a new perspective on life as millions of people around the world live it. Playing Footsteps in Russia, one player commented, “It was great to be the millionaire Russian businessman accumulating more and more wealth while learning of the many opportunities for those with rubles to spend.”

The goals of Footsteps include raising the awareness of players to the complexities of life that residents of each country face, and planting seeds of curiosity that may stimulate players to learn more about emerging market countries and explore how they might be personally involved in improving the life of the people who live there.
