Parable of the Polygons is a puzzle game all about segregation. This game is slightly different regarding being half game half blog post. The game is formatted like an article and is aimed at teaching you lessons on how harmless decisions can have a global effect, good or bad in the world.

The game contains cute squares and triangles of different color. Each one will be happy only when in the correct in ratios. For example, they will be unhappy if less than a third of their neighbors are the same shape. As their population grows it will be even harder to get the ratios correct. Have fun!
