Consent has been in the news quite a lot over the past year or so. Unfortunately, one of the reasons that consent has been in the news is due to the failure of some people to understand - or to respect - this fundamental legal concept. Consent is an important legal concept which affects all of us in a variety of ways. Although our focus here is on the meaning of consent as it relates to relationships between people, consent also affects us in other ways.
We believe videogames are the best way approach to educating and empowering people and there's a lot of research supporting this belief. Since 2008 we've been producing serious games which help young people, teachers, and parents and we hope these Consent Videogames will help everybody have a greater understanding of - and appreciation for - consent.
The new video games for 2017 about consent include: 'Stuck in a Dark Place' from Another Kind, Belgium; 'Crossing Boundaries' from Testudo Studios, U.K., 'How to Blorrble-Blobble' from Jared Sain, U.S.A., and 'ADRIFT' from Carrie Crossley and Andrew Connell, U.S.A.
