It’s not just a game, it’s an innovative way
to engage and connect with local communities
Fun & Functional
Games use the latest technology and design methods to engage people.
Not just kids play games. The average age of a gamer is 32 years old. It is rapidly becoming the standard in media.
Games require the player to actively engage, not just absorb.
A social impact game
with tangible results at its heart
With Streets of My Town, you decide the impact you want to achieve and how to measure this. Every version of the game has an evaluation built in so you can keep track of the number of players, their experience and any other customised impact.
For a recent Local Government project, we tracked understanding and engagement:
- 100% reported a better understanding of organisations and the services they provide.
- 100% would prefer to play the game over receiving a lesson in school.
- 89% thought the content was more engaging because it was delivered through a game
- 79% reported a better understanding of youth issues.
