This project looks at how using the interactive element of games generate a better sense of empathy in players, by focusing on this element of games, creators can potentially create more engaging stories that allow people to better empathise with other peoples difficult situations. If we better empathise with people and try to understand what they are going through, there is room to be more compassionate towards others.
