In an age where violent video games seem to be everywhere, there is a quiet, steady effort by many game developers to produce games that do good. These efforts range from trying to instill attitudes and ways of looking at the world that last beyond the game itself, to attempts to deliver useful knowledge and concrete information in an entertaining and memorable way.
“Prosocial” games hold the promise to teach many things, from better social skills to how to find a career with high earnings potential that also benefits society.
Likewise, Fight the Fire aspires to do something of value – to teach people of all ages basic wildfire safety information.
The game has been designed to increase players’ awareness of the many things they can do to keep themselves and their families safer and more secure. The educational content includes everything conveying the importance of planning and keeping calm in an emergency, to simple, concrete actions anyone can take to reduce the risk of wildfires.
We hope you enjoy “Fight the Fire,” and let others know about it and the importance of knowing how to stay fire safe!
