to areas of conflict.

00:00:27,640 –> 00:00:30,810
JENNIFER PARMALEE: It helps them feel like
they can be part of a solution. That’s something

empowering and fun for them.

to help remove oppressive governments.

16
00:01:14,600 –> 00:01:20,619
IVAN MAROVIC: Like strikes, boycotts, civil
disobedience, street protests, in order to

force the regime to either concede or to step
down.

18
00:01:25,549 –> 00:01:30,380

This game deals with the situation in Darfur,
Sudan.

The conflict in Darfur has displaced three
million people.

23
00:01:51,029 –> 00:01:58,240
A Web site called Second Life was used to
create the Darfur video game.

24
00:01:58,240 –> 00:02:05,240
Players can build their own make-believe world
and contact others through voice and text

25
00:02:05,240 –> 00:02:06,429
messages.

Scott Sechser works for Linden Labs, which
created Second Life.

27
00:02:11,980 –> 00:02:19,290
He says the game lets players come in and
see what is taking place in Darfur, listen

00:02:19,290 –> 00:02:25,159
to a family which left Darfur and is now in
a refugee camp.

00:02:25,159 –> 00:02:33,370
The Second Life Web site is able to change
text messages in English to other languages.

00:02:33,370 –> 00:02:38,810
Sechser says he has communicated with people
from around the world.

31
00:02:38,810 –> 00:02:46,060
Other parts of Second Life help to support
democracy and conflict resolution.

learn about legal systems in a democracy.
