Kindness in gaming

a screenshot of a gaming screen with a pink cat character telling another character with a blue baseball cap that ‘You’ll find even the smallest kindness can make someone tremendously happy’

When even the gaming world is recognising the power of kindness, that makes me really happy 😍

My niece recently sent me this screen shot of a game that she likes to play on her Nintendo switch. In the game, you design your own island and you try to build ‘friendship points’ with your villagers. You do this by having the characters talk to each other.

She was so chuffed that one of her characters had talked about kindness. She sent it to me because she knows that I’m sharing stories of kindness 😊

Let’s face it, this isn’t the traditional image of gaming. I’m delighted to hear it isn’t all guns, fighting and winning at all costs!
