There’s a power in this game. It presents a difficult situation – bullying, sadness, loss – in a gentle way that creates space to be hopeful and allows the emotions to be engaged.
Players: This is a single player game.
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+.
This game was rated PEGI 12 for frequent scenes of mild violence. It is not suitable for persons under 12 years of age. The examiners report expands this rating with the following: Violence is mild and consists mainly of Ash being shoved around by the bullies. While visibly distressed, he is largely unhurt by their actions. Ash can also fight off dark monsters with his magical paintbrush, using it to restore them to their lighter, happier selves.
