Impact Guides

PLAY

PLAY: Games offer a unique and incredible experience for learning through play, engaging users by putting them into new roles and situations inaccessible in real life. Players become actors in their own narratives, making important decisions and confronting problems in a space where failure is merely a chance to learn and try again.

REFLECT

REFLECT: Our Impact Guides focus on finding the key points in game narratives and mechanics, offering prompts for players to draw forth a deep understanding of their actions within the game, within themselves, and within the world around them. These levels of reflection and insight tap into important areas of impact that can help transform society.

TRANSFORM

TRANSFORM: Through the pairing of thoughtful play and impactful games, uniting to create meaningful gameplay experiences, our goal is to stimulate social transformation toward the creation of a better world. We encourage you to push your reflection to the next level, using your play to draw greater understanding of your role in your community and society and be inspired to involve yourself in topics and issues important to you. Through the actions of many, working collaboratively, we can make a difference in our homes, schools, countries, and all over the globe.

Providing players, parents, and teachers the tools to understand play, inspire reflection, and stimulate transformation with the goal of building a more knowledgeable  responsible, and empathetic citizenship.
