Tales of Neto: Armenia’s Tumo Center kids develop innovative anti-corruption game
YEREVAN, JUNE 6, ARMENPRESS. Armenian children have created an educational 3D game on anti-corruption, which, in a unique way shows the consequences of corruption and proposed solutions.
The game, which is called The Tales of Neto, enables the player to travel in a magical world, which is full of corruption occurrences – like embezzlement, bribery, abuse, and the player’s task is to help the citizen’s in finding correct solutions.
The game was developed in more than a year. It will be available for iOS and Android in August of 2017.
The project is being developed by students of Tumo center for creative technologies, led by Harmik Azaryan – dead of the programming department, and in assistance of the European Union.
According to senior monitor of EU’s Results Oriented Monitoring Mr. Rolf Reichert, this kind of a game is an innovation not only in Armenia, but across the world.
“This is an innovations and this kind of a game didn’t exist till now. If this game achieves its goal in Armenia, it can be used in other countries as well. This will be a very easily-perceived game and will teach children in a non-standard way to combat corruption”, he said.
