SPN interviews Collin Caneva of Green Bein’ Productions, Inc.

Lincoln October 17, 2009 by Adam Templeton


Collin Caneva accepts that video games are a staple in many kids' lives nowadays. But just because they spend hours a day clicking away in front of a screen doesn't mean the time they spend in a virtual world needs to go to waste.

Enter Kid Command, the first product developed by Caneva's game studio, Green Bein' Productions.

Similar to popular online games such as World of Warcraft or Everquest, Kid Command immerses players in a vast digital world, challenging them to undertake quests and solve problems.

But Kid Command is a game with a cause. Targeted toward a young audience, the game presents an environmentally positive message to kids, encouraging them to help make the real world a better place.

Rather than slaying goblins and killing dragons, players in Kid Command help heal a world tainted by corrupt energy called ecnarongi (ignorance spelled backward), which transforms lovable wildlife into dangerous fiends.

Check out the video below to hear what Caneva has to say about running a fledgling game studio!

From the description it seems like the message is that the world really is cute and cuddly, but ignorance has defiled it and made it a place of danger.

Wouldn't it be the other way around? The real world is full of danger and conmen, and losing your ignorance about that fact helps protect you from that danger by making you aware of it.
