Wilt or Bloom is a serious game that aims to help teach the player how to respond to others dealing with trauma. Our goal is to provide the player awareness of what to say and what not to say along with resources for more insight into listening and communication skills. Our game would be most beneficial for ages 13+ and could be recommended by school counselors, therapists, and organizations.
The player interacts with a flower and responds to its dialogue by choosing a response in the form of fertilizer. Once the player chooses the response that they feel would be best, they can drag the fertilizer over the flower to pour it. The player can then fill the water can by interacting with the water pump and then drag the water can over the flower to water it.
The flower then either wilts or blooms based on the player’s chosen dialogue. An icon then appears allowing the player to review important feedback about their choice and how it can result in potential positive or negative reactions. Once the player reviews their decision, they can go to the next day and see a new set of dialogue. At the conclusion of the game, they are provided with a list of resources.
