A downloadable game
We are Savvy, a team of 4 people who want to explore new ways of doing Open Education. We get together every week for a 8-hours jam to experiment on the new opportunities in educational resources and collective intelligence.
This time we wanted to work on EMPATHY. Our beloved programmer is in Spain for a week, so we went for a card game that anyone can download, print and play. We gladly worked with the Weekly Game Jam #113 Theme " 5 minute Hero" to offer a game in which you quickly switch between being in a good situation and being helpless (hero during 5 minutes, weakling during 5 others!).
Empathy is a difficult thing to achieve. Trying to force empathy through a game could have the opposite effect. Since we nonetheless wanted to create a game that would lead players towards empathizing with others, we designed a Gameplay that creates strong differences within the players situations. Every player will alternately experience being strong and being weak, therefore experience responsibility as the strong, low flexibility as the weak. Slime Heroes is a quick, exciting bouncy adventure with a great durability.
Download! Print! Cut! Play! FEEDBACK!
Made with love by Delphin Casado, Lola El Koubi, Frédéric Urien and Tom Rivière's spirit.
