Earlier this month, Hearthstone pro Ng Wai Chung – known in-game as ‘Blitzchung’ – was suspended by Blizzard following a post-match interview in which he expressed support for protestors in Hong Kong. If you’ve spent more than a few seconds on the gaming internet in the past few weeks, the fallout from the decision has been inescapable. As players mount their own protests of Activision Blizzard, Blitzchung is now streaming on Twitch: a game called Liberate Hong Kong.
Liberate Hong Kong is pretty much what it sounds like – a game where take on the role of a Hong Kong protestor as you attempt to avoid arrest. The game appears fairly simplistic, but Blitzchung’s hour-long Twitch stream this morning is obviously notable, and was advertised on the Hong Kong subreddit ahead of time.
This stream comes just one week before BlizzCon, and as Vice reports, online advocates are organising a day of action ahead of the convention. “We’re calling on every gamer to tweet and email their favorite developers, pros, and event sponsors,” Fight for the Future product director Dayton Young says.
