In Their Shoes was designed as an empathy exercise and as a supplement for the K-12 curriculum. It takes place in Japantown during the 1907 Anti-Asian Race Riot in Vancouver, and is based on archival research. This game is meant, in part, to be used alongside the Pivotal Voices teaching documents between the "One hundred years to rant and rave" and "What really happened?" Sections. It can, however, be played recreationally. This tabletop game is designed to be beginner-friendly and accessible. The game mechanics are drawn, primarily, from the Powered by the Apocalypse system (specifically Monster of the Week and Apocalypse World). It is recommended to print out the Character sheets, Mechanics and Moves sheets, and suggested maps ahead of time.
