SOCIAL IMPACT GAME DEVELOPMENT

The Institute of Games creates is the development studio of Streets of My Town; a social impact game that builds mental health resilience.

About Streets of My Town

‘Streets of My Town’ is a social impact game that educates young people about the support services in their local community. Players discover solutions to common youth issues and explore the benefits of seeking help early.

Having played through these virtual situations, young people are more confident to reach out when needed. Since the game is customized to each local area, the learning is immediately relatable and applicable.

SCHOOL RE-ENGAGEMENT THROUGH GAMING

This student-lead, 10 week program explores game design, programming, esports, game art, narrative design, level design, and much more…

We use student’s passion for gaming to spark and open the pathways to building a career in this thriving industry.
