Minecraft – CyberSafe: Good Game

CyberSafe: Good Game takes place just before summer break, as a group of friends discusses how to level up in their favorite game together. Unfortunately, one of their friends can't play because they broke their controller after a series of frustrating encounters with online bullies. To help their friend, players create a Good Game Guide. This guidebook will provide helpful strategies for managing challenging online situations in support of a safer, more enjoyable gaming experience.

In CyberSafe: Good Game, players encounter common problems they might experience in online spaces, including online bullies sabotaging their success, excessive distractions from the in-game chat, inappropriate screen names and language, and more. In each scenario, they'll have the chance to use the right tools to address the issue. Players can choose to ignore, correct, mute, or report a behavior. After each challenge, players will reflect on what they've experienced and add an entry into their Good Game Guide. At the end of the adventure, they'll be able to use this guidebook as a code of conduct for their future online gaming experiences.
