Digital Narrative Games Reflection

For the first game Spent, I thought it was challenging at first as you have limited amount of money to spend and limited resources but at the end i managed to save 430$ at the end of the month but had to do a lot of sacrifices like not attending my kid’s play and not fixing the car, and living without any electricity. i have learned to be more responsible with the money i have because someone out there doesn’t have to feed their kids everyday, so i better be careful. to improve the game i suggest they should put an optimistic result in the game, because all they do is try to harm you with anything, but thats not always realistic. 

For the second game, BBC Syrian Refugees, it was important to choose wisely in every step you make, because each step can be the gate to end your life or start a new obstacle. i have learned that for some people life is not fair, and people are cruel, war in any place needs to end. People deserve to live and enjoy their lives. no need for improvement in this games, it only needs more awareness because this is a serious topic. 

For the third game, Sleep-Deprived Mom Game, its good to feel and act like a mother for once, even though Im a man. But this is an awareness to see how mothers feels when we used to give them hard time and how the young girls will feel when they have a jib and a baby plus a home to take care of. to improve the game i suggest to put more options on some questions and be a little bit lenient on the mother haha.

The fourth game, responsible partying. We all have been in this situation before somewhere, but this time i decided to go along with the bad guy attitude, as I made all the wrong decisions. I learned to be more wise when it comes to parenting, teaching them the right and respective way in living, because wrong decisions in life can lead to regret in the future. 

The fifth game was A Whale Tale, where you are a whale, lost your mother and had to either look for her in the ocean or try to live by yourself, it also explains the journey of the whale finding oil spill, plastic garbage and more human wastes in the ocean that could have ended the whales life easily. this game is to teach to take care of our oceans by avoiding throwing wastes, never build factories and industries near oceans to avoid oil spills and wastes thrown there to stop harm for the marine animals. the game is quite short for some reason so it could be better to make it longer and with other information on how oceans are polluted. 

The games are not all similar but they all have something common, which is to raise awareness for a specific thing, these games are really good approach for people who are not aware of whats happening to the world and need to take care of whats going on while they are too busy buying luxurious stuff or too busy getting drunk at a parties.
