Game Art Needed for Funded Project for Legal Aid Org

Illinois Legal Aid Online (one of the country's largest legal aids) is creating a cross-platform game that will empower the public to learn about foreclosure scams and how to protect themselves. This game is being developed in Unity3D and we are looking for an independent artist who can bring an unique style to this game. We are not looking for a cartoony-style, but something more realistic. The player in the game will be…See More

"I am kind of stuck on the role-playing, aren't I ? :) Let me see what you come up with in terms of other methodologies, when you're ready. I can't personally imagine what it will look like, and that's a weakness of mine I could…"

"Can you give me more details about a preventative approach that might help me suggest a more suitable "gamification"? I'm fairly well versed in games, and there might be analogies that cover entirely different content, but have the…"

"Thank you for the response! Most basic legal needs actually don't end up in the courtroom. I will definitely check that out, but I would like to focus on a preventive approach instead."

Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
1. The Kings Quest series by Roberta Williams when I was a kid because they were my first introduction to problem solving in games.
2. Solitaire. Teaches persistence, patience. Just taught it to my daughter.
