The Adventures of Rubberkid
The Adventures of Rubberkid is a colorful, cute game for elementary school children, but is enjoyable for adults too (some have even said it’s made them tear up, or really feel connected to the characters in an emotional way!). The aim of the game is to show the player why bullying is bad by showing them the consequences of bullying. Each level focuses on helping a particular child (or children). Once helped, the player gets to see more info about them… The most important being “What Would Have Been” if the bullies continued and “But Since You Helped”, what they’ll do with their life. To stop the bullies, the player faces 9 total levels to help out 13 kids, and the action is even mixed up with 4 different types of levels to play! AND there’s even a printable certificate pledge for the player to print that puts their name right on it!
With the exception of some of the art (done by Ariel Marsh) and external music, all development was done by me, Charlie Jackson.
