Take a look at the Games for Change website, where you can play these politically motivated games.

Here's a few descriptions of the games available:
The cat at the coup: In the summer of 1953, the American government engineered a coup to take down Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh and changed the balance of power in Iran. In the game, you play as his cat and you guide Mossadegh through the past to explore significant events that were all put into place to remove him.

The curfew: The Curfew addresses a range of political themes targeted at young people, challenging them to examine the freedoms they currently enjoy and the potential consequences if they do not protect them.
