Plinkerton: a Cybersafety mystery adventure!!

Hey all,

App-titude have just released Plinkerton!!

Plinkerton is an engaging story with a hint of mystery. In Plinkerton not all is well with your online life. Your friend is sending out abusive messages and is insulting everyone on Friendbook. Meanwhile, you have a school project due and need some help, and your best friend Bryan is obsessing about earwax! But not everything is as it seems online. Feelings will be hurt and one of your friends is edging closer to danger every day.

AVAILABLE NOW! Click here for iTunes

Plinkerton is the next exciting app from App-titude Learning, where real cybersafety issues are played out with amongst a group of friends who live in Plinkerton. Young people learn about maintaining friendships online and getting their schoolwork done whilst managing real online scenarios that kids face every day.

Cybersafety messages are delivered in action, with consequences that unfold over the course of the game. Plinkerton demonstrates to children and young people the importance of cybersafety within an enthralling script set in their world, rather than abstract messages delivered by parents or teachers.
The App-titude online system tracks student progress through the story. The data provides teachers with valuable feedback on student progress and skills in relation to staying safe online. Even for students, it provides valuable self assessment on strengths and areas for improvement.

Plinkerton was previewed at the inaugural Boys and Technology Conference facilitated by Brighton Grammar School’s Crowther Centre. Teachers were “very excited about the apps and their application to improving student learning.”

Now, for all you cats out there that seem to love progress work and character dev, I've uploaded a couple of the character dev art for your enjoyment.

We are more than happy to answer any questions about the game or the development process.
I really hope you enjoy the app!
