What is the mission?
The main mission of Gaia Dream Creation is to develop and publish indie games related to social innovation. The first part of the mission is to raise awareness on social issues with indie games. In the long term, it will make connections with Sébastien Larocque's social innovation project. Games are used to change the world with education, changing mindsets and bringing experimental solutions with simulations.
Games are a wonderful means of communication. The video game industry can be more than just an entertainment industry. People have played games for centuries to develop different skills. It is a natural process that in this era of social innovation, we use video games to change the world.
