HELP BREAKAWAY REACH MORE YOUTH THROUGH MOBILE!
This $5000 fundraising campaign will fund a team of up to 4 Champlain College students to continue work on the mobile version of the BREAKAWAY game in the Spring 2017 semester. 100% of the funds go directly to supporting the students working at the Emergent Media Center.
BREAKAWAY launched in 2010 and has had incredible results changing attitudes and behavior of youth regarding bullying and violence against women and girls. However, since 2010 mobile technology has transformed access and game play.
In order to impact more young people on this critical issue, especially those young people without computers, we’ve been working on a cool, updated mobile version of the game.
WHAT WILL THE TEAM BE DOING?
During the Spring 2017 semester, the team’s work includes:
- Testing of the mini-games
- Gathering and implementing feedback
- Building out the first chapter of the narrative system
This is in part to a long term (one year) strategy of fully integrating and testing a condensed narrative and releasing the full mobile version through global media programs with Population Media Center and through the Apple and Android app stores.
HELP US MAKE CHANGE!
BREAKAWAY has already changed the lives of thousands of children. Through continued efforts, we hope to bring BREAKAWAY to thousands more and enact long-lasting change!
