Shrinking the gap... (Part 3 of 3) Getting ahead

February 20, 2013

Free game for kids addresses bullying

December 27, 2012

BOURBON — Charlie Jackson of Bourbon has created a computer game to help kids learn the consequences of bullying.
Jackson, owner of Cataclysmic Games, said that he’s been making games “on and off” for about seven years. The decision to make a game for kids happened when his artist created a character that he described as “silly and cute.”
That character eventually became “Rubberkid,” a colorful gumdrop-shaped person dedicated to protecting other kids from insults hurled at them by bullies.
