How to Blorrble-Blobble is appropriate for middle school and up.

This upbeat game teaches about consent through the framework of learning about how to dance. Not all games about consent need to talk about sex and How to Blorrble-Blobble is proof of that!

FYI: This game was the basis for the game Rispek Danis, a game about consent developed for youth living in Vanuatu.

As they travel, their adventures lead to many encounters involving consent and the variety of ways that it applies in everyday situations.

Rispek Danis (meaning "the Respect Dance" in English) is a game in Bislama developed for ni-Vanuatu youth. The game is culturally appropriate with characters, scenes, and dialogue reflecting life on Vanuatu. Rispek Danis was developed in collaboration with World Vision Vanuatu.

Rispek Danis was a 2019 Games for Change Awards finalist in the category of Most Significant Impact!

(This game is also available in English as 'The Respect Dance' but for those who speak Bislama this original version is much more authentic. The English version was only created to share with attendees at the 2019 Games for Change Festival.)

Stuck in a Dark Place also includes an Educator's Mode which allows teachers & students to begin the game at a specific chapter for classroom discussions. Note: *It is advised that the entire game first be played through from beginning to end in order to fully appreciate the context of the individual scenes.*

Content Warning: this game contains descriptions of sexual violence and mature language. It is generally appropriate for mature high school students and college students.

A Thousand Cuts is a provocative, well-written, texting game about finding justice on a college campus. The player advances the story by deciding how to respond to text messages. As they navigate through the story they find themselves also navigating the Title IX process and campus culture.

Writer and game designer Elizabeth Ballou has this to say about the game she created:

"'A Thousand Cuts' is a game about finding justice for on-campus sexual assault. When two students realize they've been assaulted by the same person, they connect over text messages. As Rosa, pick and choose your responses to a cast of characters who each play a role in holding Duane accountable - or not."
