Soul Crush Story: A Video Game to Teach About Healthy and Harmful Video Gaming

May 11, 2017

Please Note: Soul Crush is currently unavailable. We are sorry for any inconvenience, and are working to restore access.

Soul Crush Story was designed to be an engaging way to deliver health promotion messages related to video gaming. It is an interactive tool for health educators who would like to facilitate a workshop for youth/young adults around video gaming. The goals are to build the player’s awareness of some of the ways that games manipulate behaviour, while encouraging open conversation about video gaming and some of the risks.When the player tries to make a move in the game, an exaggerated “consequence” of the move takes place. The game uses standard “hooks” that make people want to continue playing.
