Belgian Game Awards


Platforms: Mobile & Tablet

Silver is a serious game that offers a unique insight into the mind of four youngsters, and takes place in six themed festival environments. In each of the branching storylines players encounter situations identifiable to what they can experience in their daily lives. While making meaningful choices to direct the outcome of the story, players get to learn about thoughts, feelings and actions - and the many possibilities of dealing with them.

The game was developed by together with the Flemish Centre of Expertise in Suicide Prevention (VLESP, UGent), and is part of an innovative approach to improve mental health in youth. The game plays a major role in the universal prevention of suicide in 12- to 16-year-olds as it is part of the Flemish suicide prevention action plan with an ultimate goal of lowering the suicide rates in Flanders.

The game has been studied in over 1.000 youngsters, and is available for free in the app stores since April 28, 2021. It will be promoted primarily in schools, starting from September 2021.
