We are not big on video games in my household. Honestly, we spend more time creating fun stuff than we do playing around with it. BUT...and this is a BIG but (no pun intended), when a game comes around that is not only fun, educational and has a great message...all bets are off. By now you've probably heard about Mission: G-Rok, a game "revolving around a hip, outgoing 11 year old boy, G-Rok, who is an aspiring music star that has been chosen to save the world before it is destroyed by the world's worst evil villain." What makes this game different than the rest? G-Rok is on a mission to save the planet and rescue his best friend Binz captured by the evil villain Smogorex. Now, you know we here at Tristin + Tyler headquarters are all about caring for the planet and trying to make sure that being "cool" doesn't just mean wearing the latest fashion - it means taking care of yourself, and everything around you. It's not often that a game keeps these themes at the forefront AND manages to infuse cool music at the same time. Oh, and let's not forget that this game is the first of many creative, kid-friendly projects from greenROKS, a venture between Russell Simmons, Natalia Weisman, Cesar Zapata and hip-hop artist, TI. I'm excited to see what's next. You can download the game here! Does your family play a lot of video games at home? How do you decide what games your kiddo plays?
