Developed for The Association for Equality

The challenge

The Association for Equality works with young people with special needs. Among other things, the young people have challenges in maintaining friendships and in becoming part of communities. So the task was to create a game that could enrich a dialogue between the young people and the people who support them, on precisely those topics.

The solution

In SOLUM, you meet four different main characters, all of whom have special challenges that affect their ability to build friendships and enter communities. The players must jointly help the characters in being good friends and strengthening their friendships. Each main character has an independent story, but by playing them all, you get the story of friendships and conflicts seen from several angles. By having to make decisions together, the game requires an ongoing dialogue and reflection. Each case also ends with a question that explicitly links the narrative to the case’s theme.

The result

SOLUM was published in the spring of 2020 and will be a part of the activities in Equality’s clubs and member schools. The game is an element of a major preventive effort and is made with support from the National Board of Health and Welfare.
