RePlay: Finding Zoe Free Online Video Game
Replay is an online game developed by Toronto’s Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children (METRAC). The interactive flash-based game tells the story of two friends searching for their good friend Zoe. They have just heard sexist, stereotyping rumors about Zoe that lead them to conclude that she is caught up in an abusive relationship. On their search, the friends navigate through their neighborhood and are challenged with mini-games that encourage them to work together and be respectful, confident communicators. Success in these mini-games helps strengthen the two charactersĺ resiliency and better equip them to support Zoe once they find her.
The game is supported by various additional materials including a youth-oriented “zine”, game Tip Cards for Girls and Boys, and a Handbook for Parents and Educators.
