Quoting: ‘A unique game design competition aimed at teen violence prevention has announced its winners, revealing that Grace’s Diary is taking home the top prize. The annual contest is sponsored by Jennifer Ann’s Group, a non-profit organization focused on teen violence education and prevention since its founding in 2006. The “Life. Love. Game Design Contest” challenges entrants to design a game about the issue — without using violence itself.’ The winning games are available to play online now.”
