Oat the Goat

NZ interactive fiction made by the NZ Ministry of Education. NZ has the one of the highest rates of bullying in the world, and the highest youth suicide rate in the world. A beautiful country but also some sad truths. The fiction below cost about $340,000 NZD which, going by the charge out rate for development these days, is money pretty well spent.

Good to see a country spending money on this obviously important topic and apparently the work has been very popular and useful for opening up discussions in schools around bullying.
