Fight for net neutrality becomes fun

Fight for net neutrality becomes funWASHINGTON: Retro Yeti, a team of students from the University of Utah's Entertainment Arts and Engineering program have created a video game 404Sight which is based on net neutrality that has recently become a hot political topic. 

According to the Verge, net neutrality is a slightly twisted name for a set of rules governing which companies can send which traffic at which speed from which carrier.

404Sight is a running game set in a surreal pastel manifestation of cyberspace, where bandwidth is life and "fast lanes" are hidden green strips that boost user's health and accelerate the pace. 

The service provider in the game is intent on taking away the bandwidth with throttling drones which the player has to evade if they want to stay online. But the player has a secret weapon "ping" that helps them find fast lanes and eventually save the internet.
