Players as Transitional Characters: How Youth Can “Breakaway” From Gender-Based Violence

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

BREAKAWAY is a soccer-themed digital game that uses the mechanics of interactive storytelling from a first person perspective to help youth worldwide learn about gender-based violence. We highlight narrative elements built into the game design to facilitate social learning and behavior change, enabling players to become “transitional characters” and break away from negative gender norms. We also feature the user experience captured through various methods and summarize how young players in different parts of the world have responded to the BREAKAWAY initiative.
