“Redemption” – Themed Game Example

Scrooge – helped by the player – gets to find items connected to his mean and stingy behaviour in the past & present – and its effect on those around him.For instance, in the past, he intended to give his fiancée Belle a gift but he stopped when he learnt the cost of buying her the present. Belle was very disappointed. Soon after this they parted ways.

When he revisits the past, the player helps Scrooge to find an item that Belle would be delighted with and then, anonymously, to gift it to her.

Belle is puzzled and delighted. There is no way for Scrooge to gain from this act – it is selfless and generous. In the game it is a sign of Scrooge’s soul moving towards redemption.
