Ayiti - The cost of Life

Working with youth leaders, Global Kids and Gamelab developed Ayiti, a role-playing video game in which the player assumes the roles of family members living in rural Haiti. Over the course of the game, players choose among and balance various goals, such as achieving education, making money, staying healthy, and maintaining happiness while encountering unexpected events. There are different pathways through the game based on the goals you set at the start. There is a teacher's guide available on the site.

Samorost 2

This is a VERY addictive game (I warned you) and it has been used by teachers to develop both problem-solving skills and to lift the students writing skills. It is a deceptively simple game where you have to click on various parts of the page in order to set in motion events that will take you through to the next screen. Check out this blog post by Ewan McIntosh that talks about gaming in general with a focus on how you could use Samorost 2 near the bottom of the post.
