Closed Hands is a brand-new video game you can play online. The game explores the effects that extremism can have on different people in our communities.

Players can log on to the game and explore the build-up to a terror attack. The game also explores the long-lasting effects that an attack can have on a city.

The game has been created by artist Dan Hett, who lost his brother in the Manchester Arena attack in 2017.

Closed Hands is happening as part of Push Festival 2021 and is suitable for ages 18+.
