Video games can be fun to play.

00:00:04,069 –> 00:00:08,750
They also can teach people how to settle conflicts
peacefully.

3
00:00:08,750 –> 00:00:13,080
This is a video game called Food Force.

4
00:00:13,080 –> 00:00:18,310
It can be downloaded from the Web site of
the World Food Program.

5
00:00:18,310 –> 00:00:25,610
The group’s Jennifer Parmalee says the game
shows children the difficulty of getting food

6
00:00:25,610 –> 00:00:27,640
to areas of conflict.

7
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

8
00:00:30,810 –> 00:00:33,730
empowering and fun for them.

9
00:00:33,730 –> 00:00:37,820
Another video game is called A Force More
Powerful.

10
00:00:37,820 –> 00:00:43,370
It takes place in a city similar to Belgrade
in the former Yugoslavia.

11
00:00:43,370 –> 00:00:46,489
Ivan Marovic designed the game.

12
00:00:46,489 –> 00:00:53,930
Ten years ago, he organized protests against
Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic.

13
00:00:53,930 –> 00:01:00,230
The president resigned after disputed election
results in two thousand.

14
00:01:00,230 –> 00:01:07,200
He was arrested on war crimes charges, but
died before his trial was completed.

15
00:01:07,200 –> 00:01:14,600
Marovic says his game shows non-violent ways
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

17
00:01:20,619 –> 00:01:25,549
force the regime to either concede or to step
down.

18
00:01:25,549 –> 00:01:30,380
Marovic says another goal is to win public
support.

19
00:01:30,380 –> 00:01:36,609
He says the goal is to win the loyalty of
people who support the government.

20
00:01:36,609 –> 00:01:41,509
Another goal is to keep up the interest of
your current supporters.

21
00:01:41,509 –> 00:01:46,049
This game deals with the situation in Darfur,
Sudan.

22
00:01:46,049 –> 00:01:51,029
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.

26
00:02:06,429 –> 00:02:11,980
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

28
00:02:19,290 –> 00:02:25,159
to a family which left Darfur and is now in
a refugee camp.

29
00:02:25,159 –> 00:02:33,370
The Second Life Web site is able to change
text messages in English to other languages.

30
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.

32
00:02:46,060 –> 00:02:53,680
They include a courtroom where people can
learn about legal systems in a democracy.

33
00:02:53,680 –> 00:02:54,470
I’m Bob Doughty.
