In this adventure game, you’ve been recruited to take part in a league of SexEd Superheros. The Task Force will train you in the art of defense against such issues as STIs, unwanted pregnancy, and peer pressure. And, as with any good superhero, your ultimate goal is to keep the citizens emotionally and physically safe. You will use your newly acquired skills throughout the game to guide citizens towards safer and healthier relationships with sexuality, giving them the best possible answers and solutions modern science has to offer.
                    
To ultimately win the game, players must successfully pass four challenges, each consisting of training simulations and a real world mission.

SexEd Super Task Force was a finalist for the first ever game design competition at the 2013 Games For Change Festival. See our presentation of the game here.
 
 
Our three main superheroes train the player in simulations before sending them on “real world” missions. From left to right: Lt. Love Glove, Colonel Desire, and Private Thoughts.
 
In this click-and-drag multi-stage simulation you’re presented with an open network of sexually active citizens who may or may not have an sti. Your task is to keep the rate of infection in your community as low as possible by preventing sti transmission through the use of barrier protection, visits to the clinic, limiting partners, and abstaining from certain sexual practices if there is no way to protect.
 
 
Here you are charged with guiding Lt. Love Glove to an enamored couple before they engage in sexual activity. In this platformer, you will need to navigate your way through a maze of condom-threatening monsters such as sharp objects (pencils, pens, and keys), sunlight, and flying friction-causing wallets. Find and use condom cases and empty mint tins for short-bursts of invincibility.
 
 
In Coupled Contraception, you are responsible for supporting a young couple as they get accustomed to their new regime of using both hormone based and barrier methods of protection. The goal of this point-and-click game is to keep the couple’s romance alive and blossoming while preventing unwanted pregnancy and transmitssion of STIs for the duration of the mission.
 
 
In Area 4’s Mission: “With a little help from a friend” you will engage closely with individuals, talking through decisions in an attempt to help them make better choices regarding their emotional relationship with sex.
This entire section uses branching narratives. It’s up to the player to decide if and when to offer another teen guidance by pressing the “Speak Up” button.
 
 
Private Thoughts will be listening in, providing you with suggestions.
 
When the advice a player gives ends the narrative, they are shown the effects it ultimately had on the teen.  
 
 
Private Thoughts will go into detail regarding the choices you made along the way as well as advice on how to better approach the situation if applicable.
