Fairside Stories is a collection of story-based role-playing games for kids where they make tough choices, observe the outcomes of their decisions and learn about their values. Your kids will discover more about themselves as they play. Do they tend to always do the right thing no matter the cost? Do they bend the rules a little to help other people? Do they choose to do impractical things to help people feel better?
STORIES THAT ADAPT TO YOUR CHILD’S DECISIONS
Your kids can play each story in a variety of ways to get different endings – sometimes perfect, sometimes okay-ish, sometimes sad – but always thought-provoking. They will learn about being kind, sensible, noble or crafty by experimenting with those behaviours within these stories. There are no obvious right or wrong answers, only tough decisions!
YOUR KIDS LEARN ABOUT THE WORLD AND THEMSELVES
No, you don’t have to stress yourself out trying to keep track of your child’s learnings! The Fairside Project has an incredible ‘Persona’ system that helps children understand each of their actions and helps both you and your child reflect on their growth.
CONNECT WITH YOUR CHILD
Fairside Stories is the perfect conversation starter – there are even in-game prompts to trigger thought-provoking discussions with your kids. Play the games together with them, discuss and debate every challenging decision, and bond with your child over your shared (or divergent) values and decision-making styles.
A WHOLE NEW WORLD
Fairside is the fantastical nation that forms the backdrop for all our games. This virtual world is a lot like our real one. Except, it gets a little more bizarre and a lot more awesome sometimes (you’ll see!). Everything kids learn at Fairside will be of use to them in the real world.
AN EVOLVING LIBRARY OF GAMES
Yes, Fairside Stories features a constantly updating, evolving library – with new games added every month. Whether it’s about rescuing an animal shelter or dealing with online classes in lockdown, the games explore a fresh situation and new challenges without losing sight of the positive traits that Fairside is all about!
WE GENUINELY CARE ABOUT KIDS GROWING UP RIGHT
At Bigfatphoenix, we care about helping kids grow into happier, healthy adults, and into responsible, thoughtful citizens. The only way to ensure this is by helping them develop strong values and social-emotional skills. We also deeply love games and strongly believe that they are a powerful way for kids to learn. So we created Fairside Stories!
DESIGNED BY EXPERTS – AND REALLY SMART KIDS
By bringing together game designers, learning designers, kids, parents, educators and SEL experts, we’ve created playful and powerful learning experiences that kids enjoy and parents value. We work closely with kids, parents and educators to craft each of our experiences.
In fact, our Fairside Squad of kids and parents have been an integral part of our design process from the start – giving us valuable feedback and suggestions for more fun and stronger learning.
