Game for public welfare
A thai game developer, is developing a goodness game. That's not what he calls it, but the aim of the game is to be good - according to the tenets of Buddhism. These happen to be : do not kill, do not steal, do not commit adultery, do not lie, and do not drink alcohol. Now we haven't seen a game where you get points for quaffing on a bottle of jack, but except for that, you pretty much do all the rest of those no-nos in today's games.
Pakorn Tancharoen is a senior officer in Thailand's Religious Affairs Department. He got concerned by modern impact of gaming when he heard about a boy who attacked his mother when she wouldn't pay for an online gaming session.
Tancharoen went to extent of developing this game where you follow three children on a pilgrimage with a wise old monk. You have to deal with obstacles along the way, of course, but you have to be good while doing it. No fragging old monks. No fragging monkeys,either - even shooting animals will cost you points.
People can download the game at www.khondee.net/game.
But remember the game is in thai.
