8:12 am
of war so. welcome to the stream and you so much new friend this. is the president of games for change that's a nonprofit organization that brings together game creators and social innovators and around me it's now is a video game developer and co-founder of the netherlands based studio. he also helped start the game well developer conference hello everybody it's good to have you here i should really say thank you to your mom because without my mother sitting it will literally but also because the subject matter let me just i looked around the internet i found obama here he is right here the story about how you got into gaming was all about what your mother did in order to help you get into gaming you spent all of your life in a refugee camp and you love video games how did you even get to play them. from
8:13 am
a country with a civil war. a long time ago to flee to the roof and when they were going to the roof and you come i was born on the way learned from their growing up as children who love you know the good thing about video games it doesn't matter with him. where you you have to make sure that you have to find something to play and formula growing up in a refugee camp i never thought i'd video game a credible people as opposed to just for from having. read everything is out there i never thought about it and one day i went to like. refrigerate just christian center and i saw a computer and i was asking my mother like what is that and she said as a computer and i will write i want to use that one day and then like i went to internet cafe and my friend stole for me a video game called drop that was all right then i started playing a show like like when i stopped playing i was like you know this is
8:14 am
a great video game and how can we be able to use game 4 for game to bring peace and your misery saw that because most kids when they're playing grand theft auto i'm not thinking how do i change the well because i think you have any point that the reason is because what i was saying in the game was actually what is happening in my country and i was like how can i use this to be able i'm because i'm from a country that i was over 73 percent of the population is under the age of 30 these are young children who were born in what they were raised and when they start playing this kind of game because it can be able to change their mindset and i went and i told my mother need a lot of and she love me and see like what are you going to do with a computer and with no money there's no place where you can charge it and she spent almost 3 years looking for $300.00 to buy from a computer so one day when like this is the money and i was like wow what do i do and it is the best. so like a highlight work every day because i know making video game is the best thing that
8:15 am
i can be able to do because video game can be able to you know change the mindset of people and people can be able to play it and the whole idea is about you know when you play a game it become part of your life especially when you play with a friend when your friend kill your career you feel like why did you kill me it's like why did you kill my character and become a part of your life and us were like when we have kind of impact it can be like and you see like. industry grows every day so for the handful of people in our audience who don't play video games because our audience think they actually love this topic and i want to share that i want to share with them this this page this is grand theft auto so this is what really caught your attention there it was actually grand theft auto by city was just one of the wind sway on line we got a comment from someone who writes in on twitter that 1st person shooter games what's your grand theft auto could arguably be considered one of those glorify killing and they glorify the military so you talks briefly about the link between
8:16 am
theme that game and seeing what was going on in your own country but then how did that how did you take that next step to say i'm going to turn it on its head and i won't be glorifying killing i won't be glorifying shooting and that's why i will become a game because what we have to identify the problem and the solution that we want to solve and for me i saw a solution of conflict you know of what is opening in the world today i believe true peace is something that is built over time and when i start playing video games is that if we can be able to create something like grant we can actually turn it around depend on what is your what is your solution to the problem that you want we want to solve. we have a responsibility to be able to create things that can bring social impact along a lot of them and that's why i would like susan to talk about the game. balance is
8:17 am
an object that. has such an extraordinary sight so in a wonderful way to solve a private have. you found you know how did you find. i was not mistaken what was your 1st. as for moten is his game and he had been invited by the organizers ms festival to show this game that had gone viral through social media actually. to the point where it caught the attention of the men organizing i remember meeting a law and the law you were talking about you know being so amazed by that community in south africa very young infant unity at the time as well and people helping each other sort of wondering about whether something like that could exist that homeless outside on. in the refugee camp and they come to the conclusion that you could just
8:18 am
make that yourself if you want to. and it was i remember being very impressed about that already you would want to do you mind if i'm just going to say that while the festival was coed at the lal you go out in a refugee camp in northern uganda maidens at home it's called sam well you know what counting carol is when people say oh. this was this was a phenomenal game obviously as low pointed out games are an international language day extend far beyond. far beyond just the stories that we tell playfulness and player such international such international things. i travel a lot or for my work trying to promote involvement in emerging territories in developing countries and one thing i notice is that no matter where in the world you go if you put a ball on the ground and get it to work somebody they're going to pick it back you don't need to speak their language and single use. games to to tell
8:19 am
this message that is. you know you would hope is a very global message but it's such a privilege to many of us in the world that we grow up and be nice to see the wall use his experiences and tell old that story to tell that perspective through this video game was extremely. impressive and it drives he had to to make that a bigger thing to turn that into a structural and for both for himself and in the industry i was just i was incredibly impressed that are you go out. and see what you've done since obviously it's been. it's been incredible.
