American taxpayers nationwide will have the opportunity to blast some of our country’s biggest tax-dodgers in a new video game, “Tax Evaders.” Inspired by the iconic “Space Invaders” video game, “Tax Evaders” will allow everyday taxpayers to blast tax-evading corporations like Bank of American, General Electric, Wells Fargo, Exxon-Mobil, BP, Chevron, Citi, Verizon, Microsoft, Facebook, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.

“Why are we even discussing cuts to social security and other public services before going after the Tax Evaders who are stealing hundreds of billions from our economy?” says Gan Golan, coordinator of the national project. “We don’t need to close schools and hospitals. We need to close tax loopholes for corporations and the very rich.”
In the last week, a number of studies released by Americans for Tax Fairness and US PIRG have shown that wealthy corporations have rigged the game in order to pay less than their fair share of taxes and these coordinated actions represent a growing backlash to the billions held in corporate tax havens and the tens of millions of dollars spent on lobbying by these companies to protect them.
The game was designed in collaboration with famed game designer, Paolo Pedercini of Molleindustria to bring attention to the issue of corporate tax evasion and allow for the player to shoot Twitter-bombs at the corporations #taxevaders.
