The benefits of storytelling-focused games

Did you know that gaming has some serious benefits? A study showed that children who play video games have good social skills, perform better academically, and build better relationships with other students because of the social and collaborative components of some types of games. It trains the ability to take on new perspectives and feel more sympathy. But what are the other benefits of storytelling-focused games? In this blog, we discuss how our games benefit your daily life.


The day-to-day hassle can be quite stressful. That is why it is nice to have coping mechanisms to decompress from that stress. It’s different for everybody how you want to relax. It could be through sports, hobbies, or going to social events. But it is even easier when you can have your well-deserved me-time in the palm of your hand. Our Free to Play games are an easy way to focus on something totally different, create some well deserved me-time, and relax.

New opportunities and connections

Did you know that video games can inspire you to be more persistent? With games you can can learn from your mistakes in a playful way. Some researchers and educators argue that video games can teach people to be more confident and to work towards their goals. Whether you want to be a doctor, the world’s best chef or want to have your own bed & breakfast: games can inspire you to create your own path. In this way, you can choose to be whatever you want to be and maybe even take these steps in reality.

Immerse yourself

Within the realm of storytelling, you’ll find the theory of the Hero’s Journey. Many movies, books, and games follow this theory to navigate through the story. The hero has to learn something and goes through different steps of their journey to achieve what they want. The nice thing about most of our games is that you can immerse yourself in the journey of the main character. This creates a sense of recognition. You get to feel what the character feels and have an immersive experience.
