Junub Games utilizes gaming to build bridges between communities and enhance peaceful behavior. Internationally, over 2.2 billion people play video games, with 42% of these on mobile devices. Studies have shown that exposure to prosocial video games predicts subsequent prosocial behavior, and a change in video game use from violent to prosocial will significantly affect change in helping, and this relationship is mediated by change in empathy. With South Sudan’s shakeup due to the recent two-year civil war, as well as legacies of violence from the decades long civil war which ended in 2005, Junub Games has developed playing cards, video and board games. These games to aim promote unity and combat sectarianism .The games are translated into local languages, and distributed across the country, including to IDPs and to refugees living in neighboring countries.
