Game can be an important component for learning in both informal and formal education. It provides an excellent environment for sharing of ideas and discussion even societal issues. The game development group of Minamata Resilience Exercise 2014 aimed to create an interactive game targeting graduate students in a classroom setting, which of its theme focused on the ongoing compensation issues of Minamata Disease.

Our game, “Let’s find a solution for compensation issue of Minamata disease” requires basic understanding in the historical background and socio-cultural issues of Minamata Disease. We recommend you to watch the video produced by our peer prior to playing our game.

Resources for playing our game are shown below for educational use. We hope you will be able to gain further understanding in the complexity of Minamata Disease, and the issues that remain today.
