    "Edutainment" is an oft-mocked word, but a lot of people do learn things much more readily through interactivity than through passively attempting to absorb information. The recent "Sweatshop" game from Channel 4 and Littleloud was a good example of how to educate people on serious issues through fun gaming. "The End," a new web game also from Channel 4, but this time developed by digital studio Preloaded, aims to get its players -- particularly 14-19 year olds -- thinking about the end of life and attitudes towards death.

  • News: Saved By The Bell Gets a 16-Bit Makeover

    Fine Brothers Productions just laid a golden egg. One part 16-bit videogame complete with a 16-bit era soundtrack, one part classic early 90s sitcom, and three parts create-your-own-adventure, Saved by the Bell Interactive is a grand slam of nostalgia. Playing as Zach, you're given the option to help Jesse balance school and singing (see Jesse's caffeine pill freakout), help turn Screech into a stud so he can get laid Violet won't dump him, or help Kelly deal with the trauma of her dad losing his job. If you're a fan of the show you'll get a kick out of the attention to detail TheFineBros pay to the storylines and plot holes within the actual Saved By The Bell series.
