Rubberkid Computer Game (free) and Anti-Bullying Campaign

Teach kids the evils of bullying with this FREE Flash (and PC!) game by bouncing insults back at the bullies who hurl them.
  • Launched: Nov 30, 2012
  • Funding ends: Dec 30, 2012
The Adventures of Rubberkid is a FREE Flash game to be distributed as far and wide as possible to help show how terrible bullying can be! The game will also be available for a "name your own price" on download to PC. That price can be anything from absolutely free to a million dollars if one wants; 100% of the proceeds will be used to promote the game and make more like it!

Rubberkid is just a regular kid who was sick of being bullied. To fight back, Rubberkid created a suit of rubber bands to bounce the insults bullies hurl right back at them!

The aim of the game is to show the player the consequences of bullying. Each level focuses on helping a particular child (or children). Once helped, the player gets to see more info about them... The most important being "What Would Have Been" if the bullies continued and "But Since You Helped", what they'll do with their life. This clearly demonstrates the terrifying results of bullying!
When the player begins, they enter their name and are presented with a printable certificate pledge as a reminder to not bully others and to speak up when others are bullied as well! The certificate is below, but will actually have their name across the top, and once printed the player will sign and date it themselves, making it a true pledge against bullying!

Because the game is free (and ALWAYS will be!), there is no contribution amount to try it out... You can play the game right here! [Last updated 11/20/12]

I'm so glad you asked! The game still needs music and sound effects, it would be awesome to have it translated (see Stretch Goals) and, most of all, it needs to be promoted! The goal of the game is to help teach kids the evils of bullying; if kids don't know about it, they certainly won't learn from it, will they? Do YOU want to be responsible for the continued bullying of children everywhere?!
