An Israeli company is developing a series of computer games to help children who are dealing with emotional and psychological problems.
Zipland Interactive, based in Tel Aviv has just launched its first game, Earthquake in Zipland to help children cope with the issues of divorce.
The story is about Moose who lives with his parents, the King and Queen of Zipland and the island is held together by a zipper. One day, an earthquake happens and Moose finds himself on a raft floating in the ocean and trying to get back.
"Earthquake in Zipland is unique in the way that it deals with a situation no other game has ever dealt with, in a fun and entertaining way," says Chaya Harash, chief executive of Zipland Interactive. "Everyone knows that divorce has a terrible impact on the children involved. Now, parents and psychologists have a tool that can actually interact with a child whose parents are separated or divorced, in order to help him handle the drastic changes in his life," she added.
