I know I haven’t written in a while, but I thought this was important enough to post here on my blog. Sunil Rao has created a game called Inner Vision where the player must try to convince those contemplating suicide to not go through with it. It takes the form of various dialogue choices and I felt it was very touching. The game demonstrates the power of talking with someone you trust about your problems.
I am happy to see that video games are breaking out and tackling difficult issues such as suicide because it shows that the medium is growing up. Can video games be employed to save lives?
