“Which Side Are You On” is an immersive museum exhibit game about the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919, created by the Carleton University Information Technology department as a showcase piece for the Canadian Museum of Civilization for the 90th anniversary of the strike. The game is centered around numerous individuals (some fictional, some factual) who represent key figures and groups who were involved in the strike, like Mrs. Helen Armstrong, one of the organizers of the strike, and Mayor Charles F. Gray.
In order to complete the game, players must explore the town square, the primary location where the strike took place, and interact with each of these individuals, gathering facts along the way. Once they have all of the facts, they must choose what which group to side with, and participate in a related event with them. The purpose of the game is to objectively portray all sides of the Winnipeg General Strike, allowing players to form their own opinions and perspectives on its purpose and impact on labour reform.
