Abstract: This paper explores how the design of the video game Guaiya Means Love could support critical computer science (CS) identity development through identity positioning (Gresalfi & Hand, 2019) and double binds (Gutiérrez et al., 2019). The combination of two mechanics - make choices in anti-colonial story and hack the game’s source code - affords a fertile landscape for youth to develop their stance around political dimensions of computation and start to imagine themselves as critical, computational, anti-oppression actors.
