One of the core None in Three aims is to create story-driven games that explore the reality of gender-based violence. There will be an emphasis on choices that allow the player to connect to the characters and understand an environment of gender-based violence. The games will be made available for free to help inspire positive change.
The first game produced by the Centre was Jesse. Designed to reduce negative attitudes that promote the social acceptance of domestic violence in the Caribbean and to increase empathy, Jesse was developed in Barbados and Grenada and has since been piloted in seven schools in St Lucia.
Games for young people in Uganda, Jamaica, India and the UK are currently in development; further information will be added about each of these over time.
Ni3 Games In Development
We are currently working on character and location designs for our games for India, Jamaica and Uganda. Click the links below to find out more about the development of each of these games.
The Indian game focuses on a young girl, Anju, and explores the different kinds of gender bias that she encounters both at home and at school. The game has been designed to change attitudes that contribute to violence against women and girls in India. Our aim is to empower young people, to increase empathy and to raise awareness of the causes and effects of gender inequality and gender-based violence.
Our Jamaica game focuses on a teenage girl, Gabrielle, who lives with her mother, Grace, and her mother’s boyfriend, Johnny. The game has been designed to inform young people about child sexual abuse, to empower young people to report it, to increase empathy for those who are victimised and to raise awareness of the complex ways in which power and grooming are used to coerce and silence victims.
Our Uganda game focuses on a girl, Peace, her brother and their family. It looks at the issue of child marriage from a range of perspectives and the challenges faced by Peace and her family. The game has been designed to increase understanding of sexual coercion and abuse as both a consequence of and contributing factor to child marriage in Uganda and to raise awareness of its causes and effects.
