Video games have come a long way from being just a form of entertainment. It has become a medium for storytelling, a way to raise awareness, and even a tool for therapy. "With Them: Frontlines" is an upcoming game that aims to promote a better understanding of veteran mental health while providing an immersive gameplay experience. Developed by ORE System, this game will feature real-life stories of veterans and a first-person shooter multiplayer mode.
"With Them: Frontlines" – A First-Person Shooter for a Cause!
"With Them: Frontlines" is not your ordinary first-person shooter game. It features real military veterans as playable characters, and the gameplay is based on their experiences. This game aims to raise awareness about veteran mental health and reduce the high suicide rate among veterans of the video game generation. The initiative utilizes technology, particularly video games, to showcase the stories of veterans who have shared their experiences and encourage others to do the same.
The game will be launched on PC on November 27, 2023, and the IndieGoGo campaign will launch on 3/27/2023. With integrated monetization, the game supports the further development and support for veteran charities. The multiplayer first-person shooter portion of the game provides a gameplay experience similar to Call of Duty (CoD), but with real military veterans as playable characters. The single-player campaign provides a first-person experience of what a real military veteran experienced in their own words. Through storytelling and first-hand accounts by real military veterans, a fully immersive game environment and storyline is created.
Supporting Veteran Mental Health with Real-Life Stories and Gameplay!
The game’s initiative is to promote a more informed conversation with healthcare providers and enhance the gameplay experience. The game will also feature the ability to sync with an application that connects to wearables and smartphones to collect data to share with healthcare providers, facilitating a more direct discussion between patient and provider. This information can be used as part of the initial screening process to establish baselines for treated patients and evaluated throughout applied therapeutics to gauge the response to other therapies.
Stories in the game provide a first-person experience to remove the stigma of a veteran sharing their experience and story through gameplay. A playable mini-documentary allows the player to "be there" and understand what each featured veteran experienced. The aim is to provide a better understanding of veteran mental health issues and reduce the stigma surrounding the topic. With Them provides an immersive and informative experience that can help bridge the gap between veterans and their healthcare providers, all while providing an enjoyable gameplay experience.
"With Them: Frontlines" is more than just a game. It’s a tool for raising awareness about veteran mental health and reducing the high suicide rate among veterans of the video game generation.
