Drumbeat Quest

Drumbeat Quest is a new computer game being used in Australian schools to help young people with behavioural issues.

The adventure game is operated using a drum. Players have to hold a steady rhythm during time of stress to avoid defeat. Each lesson runs for twenty minutes, after which students have to discuss the choices they made in the game and how they relate to everyday life. Themes include bullying, peer pressure, drug and alcohol, mental health etc.
