You are walking and you find a man who is there, eating glass out of his hands. "Eat this glass with me" he says.
[[no]]You ate the glass. It tastes like mouth damage. You lose 1 point. The moral is eating glass is the wrong thing to do no matter what.
[[continue->level 2]] You make a good choice and don't eat the glass. The man tries to peer pressure you but he is wrong. You did a good thing not eating that glass and don't let him make you feel bad about it.
You gain 1 point
[[continue->level 2]] Your husband finally arrives home after three days of unexplained absence. He smells of liquor and a stranger's bad perfume. You do not speak to each other as you put the kids to bed. Your son asks where his father has been and you tell him, as you've been telling him for three days now, that daddy was on a business trip. Once the children are asleep, your husband pours himself a glass of whisky from a bottle you didn't know was hidden in your junk drawer and tells you he's been cheating on you for years. He cries.
"Tell me you'll stay with me," He says. "Tell me you still love me. If not for me, then for our children."
[[no->go]]You lie to him and tell him yes. You stay together until you die. Your husband continues to cheat on you. You are sad every day. Your children learn to lie also. You would think that there would be some happy moments in the midst of all of this but you are wrong. Your choice was wrong. The lesson is that lying is always wrong no matter what.
You lose 1 point.
[[continue->level 3]] You tell him the truth which is that you do not love him and you are going to leave him. He tries to peer pressure you about it but he is wrong. You are right. Your children will understand because you made the choice that was unambiguously the correct one.
You gain 1 point.
[[continue->level 3]] You are walking in the forest and then you see a woman holding a baby upside down with its head on the ground. She says to you "I cannot punt this baby by myself. Help me to punt it."
[[no->don't punt]] You refuse the woman's polite request to help punt this baby. You do not even stop to consider that maybe there is a good reason that this baby needs a punt. What if this baby grows up to be Hitler, or A Worse Hitler. Would you feel bad then, when you found out you did not help to punt A Worse Hitler as a baby?
These are some of the problems we face when we try to make moral decisions.
[[continue->this was a game]] You hold the baby while the woman punts the baby out of your hands. It flies for a long way before it hits a tree. You think you did the right thing, but it is hard to be sure. Sometimes moral decisions are difficult.
[[continue->this was a game]] This has been a game about moral decisions. I do not know what your score was because I was not keeping track of the points you gained and lost. Sometimes keeping track of points is hard, like moral decisions.
