Talk Town is an online, interactive adventure game. Users create a character they identify with, and navigate through a game environment of real life situations. Effective self advocacy and 'soft' communication skills are shaped and reinforced throughout the game. The online format is visually engaging and geographically accessible. Content is engaging and accessible for diverse deaf children. Players can self-determine their own learning journey without specialist adult input or extra resources. Through playing the game, users will gain valuable skills that will help them connect with their local communities, and benefit them throughout their lives.
Talk Town aims to launch in late 2018.
