Global Kids’ Digital Media Initiative main Second Life grid launch of Teen produced game CONSENT!

Posted by bronwynr on April 9, 2009

CONSENT! is a first person, simulation game based on Harriet A. Washington’s book “Medical Apartheid” <www.medicalapartheid.com> in which your avatar assumes the role of an African-American prisoner who has to make tough decisions about whether to choose to ‘consent’ and submit to medical experiments, which took place during the time period of the 1940s to the present.

The game was designed and developed by Global Kids youth leaders in the Playing 4 Keeps after school program at South Shore High School, NYC using tools in the virtual world of Teen Second Life. Additional building and scripting was also done by the teen-run TSL development company, Digital Refinery.
