What’s a ‘Serious Game’?
“‘Serious games’ can be used to save lives and help us to become more robust and resilient in the face of the significant global challenges we face.” Professor Sara de Freitas,

Play ~ Motivate ~ Act
Illiteracy, including religious illiteracy, is handicapping. Ignorance of others and how they view the world fosters clichÃ©s, prejudice, racism and even violence. A first step away from intolerance towards understanding and acceptance involves unbiased knowledge about othersâ€™ values and how they live. What better way to learn about others than through play?
Playing our serious games fosters:
Better understanding of ourselves and one another
A feeling of connectedness with others
Sound attitudes for dealing wisely with all
Play to beat ignorance and bring harmony into the world!
