Under rating threshold (show) I learned that riding an ATV with a passenger is unsafe, so the solution is to kill the passenger.

Under rating threshold (show) me likes ... sure can't completely avoid the "somebody is trying to teach me something" feel to it, well that's because somebody IS ... but very well done for it. One of the good decisions, I think, was to not try to make this into a game that could be played for hours. The story, the time it takes to finish the game, the amount of teacher's messages in relation to the whole game ... all come off as well balanced. The visual style is nice too. One nit-picky suggestion to improve: If you've been to the place before and return with the right item, you shouldn't have to go through the whole animations, again ... or maybe be able to click to ff through each image.

Under rating threshold (show) Fun but contains several conflicting messages which may be a little confusing for new ATV riders. REMEMBER: If you do encounter a large number of paranormal entities do not engage them yourselves. The ATV Safety Institute recommends returning to a place of safety and calling Ghostbusters (555-2368). Equally, shoring roads, removing electrical parts from cars and repairing public bridges is a job best left to the professionals.

Under rating threshold (show) Hope everyone enjoys the game. We made this game because kids and adults are getting into many preventable accidents on ATVs. If this game spares even one person a fatal or debilitating accident, the work that went into it will be well worth it. (And we hope the game is fun in its own right!)

Under rating threshold (show) Well done, interesting game that tries to teach you something and isn't boring while doing it! There should be more projects like this that are not just about mindless clicking or killing.

Under rating threshold (show) Congratulations for this game. You did an amazing work on this serious game, and the result is a fun gameplay mixed with a not-too-intrusive message. Plus, the graphics are excellent and the music diverse and immersive. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) I actually enjoyed this game. :) It was quite entertaining but simple. I was playing it for quite a while. It has nice art-work and a nice storyline, although the gameplay might not have been too good, i think it was supposed to be based mainly on the storyline and to inform people how to ride ATVs safely. Good luck with your future games and just remember, The Attic is always there for you to get feedback. :D

Under rating threshold (show) jasmindudic obviously didn't play the game, otherwise he would have learned 4 year olds aren't allowed to ride ATVs thus this game cant be aimed at 4 year olds. Great interactive, the styling is slick, and the story is well wrote.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't know that I really learned all that much that would stick about ATV Safety, but I've got to say this is about the best way to present such that I've ever seen in my life. Well done NMSUCC, well done indeed. Good art, good storyline, simple as hell but fun solutions - this is probably one of the best submissions I've ever seen to Kong. /Applaud.

Under rating threshold (show) At first this game looked like it might be fun. Then you realize it's about teaching you ATV safety stuff, and that somehow makes it even more awesome! Here's a quick question: If the ATV is short for All-Terrain Vehicle, how come it doesn't work on asphalt?

Under rating threshold (show) Man 1: Our town is beset upon by a werewolf, frankenstein-like creature, swamp creature and a vampire. Should we call Van Helsing or some other supernatural hunter? Man 2: Why should we when these ATV riders just rolled into town? They seem fully qualified because of their abilities to ride ATVs and promote ATV safety.

Under rating threshold (show) This game achieves a nice balance between being genuinely informative as well as engaging and entertaining. Certainly, there are a lot of simple click-and-drag mechanics, but it is clear that design choices were made in order to facilitate learning about ATV safety. The player is meant to walk away thinking about their ATV and how to ride it safely, not necessarily to think about playing the game itself. The storyline and mood are very deeply engrossing, and I believe this game is important to play in regards to 'edutainment' or using video games as a channel for sharing genuine, useful information. This game proves at least that we can, too, have pretty media to teach us about the world. I look forward to experiencing the next games this team produces.

Under rating threshold (show) So it's okay to hunt monsters, but riding an atv on the desolate road instead of the trail is not safe? Which one is more likely to be well-paved and graded, with less debris?
