Mental health education through storytelling
Mortal Fools’ ‘Melva’ is the story of a young girl learning about and facing anxieties, trauma and bereavement, otherwise known as ‘Worrits’ - the encapsulating performance teaches young children about the importance of mental health. Since the pandemic meant that in-school productions could no longer take place, Mortal Fools needed a way to continue to help children whilst teaching resumed from home. The solution was a browser-based game.
What we did
- Bespoke Browser Game Build
- Character and Environment Design
- Marketing Support
Building Melva's World
With a completely new story from Mortal Fools, we were tasked with creating designs for each of the characters from the play, as well as interactive backgrounds with clickable elements and mini-games . We created a bespoke website to accommodate project as well as allowing users and schools to sign up.
Engaging learning at school and home
Allowing Melva to also become an online resource allows schools and children the ability to access it whenever needed, and has already begun to become an exciting activity for both children at home and in classrooms.
