The article, “Grief in video games: how gaming can help us confront death” by BEN TRAVIS states

“As anyone who’s watched Six Feet Under will tell you, the right story can change the way you think about life and death. But books, films, and TV shows aren’t the only art forms that can help us work through difficult emotions – video games are becoming an increasingly expressive medium for players to engage with grief and loss.

Apart of Me, developed by social enterprise Bounce Works, is a mobile game designed to help young people deal with the death of someone close to them. Currently in the latter stages of development, and funding extra features in an Indiegogo campaign, the project is an RPG (role-playing game) where the player avatar, a grieving child, arrives on an island where a wise Oracle helps them process their feelings.

“The overarching narrative of the hero’s journey is interesting when applied to a young person’s grief,” says Bounce Works co-founder Louis Weinstock, a child psychotherapist who worked in a bereavement support service at a Hackney hospice. “They can get to a point where they can turn their suffering into a sort of resilience for other people.”
