Theme - Adventure/Simulation/Educational
Platform - PC and possibly browser based
Objective: The objective of the game is to raise awareness for bullying and create a better image of what bullying actually is, as well as providing help for people who are facing being bullied as not many people tell others or some people might not even know they are being bullied or may not have the confidence to seek help.
Similar to the Objective of the game i want to achieve the feeling that by developing a game about bullying where people can find out more information and help from it i hope that i can achieve a feeling of success that i have helped someone. As will everything people do it is all experience that affects you no matter how small it may affect you so even if this fails i can say i have tried something new which is an amazing feeling. What i truly want to achieve is that you only have one life it could be short it could be long no one really gets a say in that but its up to you how you live your life no one can tell you how to live it and its up to you to make your life something to remember which is what i want to teach people and its what i want to realise myself.
I feel like the best thing about doing this game is there isn't many anti bullying games when games are for everyone no matter who you are so one of the best ways to communicate a message is through a game. and sometimes the message is even more effective than through talking, reading or even watching a film. Many people take messages in all different ways.
The most important aspect of this game i want to focus on is providing information and help as that's the whole point in creating this game to help people some people don't realise their potential some people don't realise what they say or what they do, some people don't realise how important they are, Its the same with bullying some people don't know what to do about it, some people don't know they are being bullied and some people don't even know they are bullying with this game i am hoping to make a change and show people what bullying is and all the different help there is available.
