Good they are finally start to take the violence in video games seriously!
It is good to see that after yet another horror show at a school in Florida recently that the US Government is finally starting to take violence in video games seriously.
They keep claiming it doesn't cause violence but wisdom and intuition tells us otherwise. It DOES effect us ALL even if it is not apparent at the time, it is conditioning us and desensitising us to violence. It programs our sub-conscious and it may now become apparent for years later.
Do you think it is that a 4 year old its playing violent video games such as Call of Duty? With games becoming more and more realistic and with the event of Virtual Reality the line between reality and game is only going to blur even more. Kids and some people already cannot tell the difference between a game and reality, this is only going to get worst...
It is not just video games that are to blame, it is the entire society where violence and war is glorified and can be seen in films, TV, books, everywhere.
It is time we leave war and violence in the past where they belong...
We will have a lot less violence, crime, gun crime, schools being shot up etc such as the recent shooting in Florida.
This is one off the many issues that Our World tackles where it seeks to teach people the right life lessons on how to build a better more peaceful society and world where we can all live in harmony with each other and our beautiful planet...
Below is an important exert on a previous post we did on the subject:
"Well the big news is that the actual US Military in real life do the same, they use flight simulator and war games to find and recruit the best pilots to control their drones. They also use games such as Call of Duty to train and recruit marines. These games are also used as a form of brainwashing to desensitize people to war and violence making it easier to recruit the youth.
What makes this even worst is that kids as young as 5 are also playing games like these, which is totally unacceptable.
Kids today are playing very violent games such as Call Of Duty which are used as brainwashing techniques to desensitise us to violence and also act as a training and recruitment tool for the military (which they have now admitted). The same goes for flight simulators being used to train and recruit drone pilots.
We hope you will agree this is totally unacceptable and is part of why there is so much war, violence, etc in today’s world. It is time we start using technology to teach people the correct life lessons. Our World acts as a simulation for the real world and teaches them how to create a better world in the simulation and then shows how they can then implement these important lessons in real life.
People say that violent does not effect them, well I am sorry to say it does, even if you are not aware of it at the time. They are still programming you and desensitizing you to violence so you more readily accept the violence and wars so pervasive in our modern society. The violence in games is effect our sub-conscious and kids are even more vulnerable to this due to their brains still being in development. Do you really want your kids to be programmed with violence, drugs, stealing, crime, sex gambling etc in this manner?
Even one of the developers of COD admits this:
An exert from the above link:
"WE ESSENTIALLY BRAINWASH THEM INTO LIKING IT."
An exert from the above link:
"“For decades the military has been using video-game technology,” says Nina Huntemann, associate professor of communication and journalism at Suffolk University in Boston and a computer games specialist. “Every branch of the US armed forces and many, many police departments are using retooled video games to train their personnel.” "
Now lets be clear, we deeply respect the brave men and women who lay down their life's to protect their country but we believe these methods of recruitment are deeply unethical and immoral.
We also strongly believe that games, films, etc should not be glorifying violence, killing and wars. If humanity is to survive we need to move away from wars and violence of all kinds We need to instead start promoting peace and better ways of negotiating without having to resort to violence, a hang up from the medieval dark ages.
With what has been going on in the Middle East (creating terrorists that did not exist before) and now with the threats from North Korea it should be clear that war is not the answer. We need to disarm the entire world of ALL nuclear warheads immediately, everyone knows it will be the end of us so why keep them? It is insanity!"

The software industry has the power to transform lives through engaging people with innovative products that help them to grow and develop. Recent popular examples include health apps, mindfulness apps and mind training games.
We wish to take this to the next level and help make the world a better place by using technology for good, by bringing people together and to support, guide and educate everyone on how we can all live happier, fulfilling lives and at the same time how we can help save our planet.
We will do this by creating a suite of next gen apps & games using the latest cutting edge technology such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Real-time emotional feedback, face/voice recognition, motion detection and so much more.
Our World is an exciting immersive next generation 3D Virtual Reality educational game/platform teaching people on how to look after themselves, each other and the planet using the latest cutting edge technology. It teaches people the importance of real-life face to face connections with human beings and encourages them to get out into nature using Augmented Reality similar to PokÈmon Go but on a much more evolved scale. This is our flagship product and is our top priority due to the massive positive impact it will make upon the world...
Our World is more than just a game or platform, it is an entirely new ecosystem/internet, it is the future way we will be interacting with each other and the world through the use of technology. There is a reason we are called NextGen Software! ;-)
Our World implements the Synergy Engine, the co-creation wheel and a new holistic approach to technology.
Our World reminds people how powerful they are and empowers them to be the person they have always wanted to be, to live their life to their FULL potential without any limitations. Everyone has a gift for the world and with Our World we can help them find it. We want to empower people to take responsibility for our beautiful planet, which is currently in crisis and so needs EVERYONE to help make a difference. The entire world is the Our World team, we want everyone to get involved so they can feel they are part of something greater than themselves and at the same time ensure there is a future for our kids and grandkids.
People learn at a young age how to act and behave and this shapes the future generations and the world they will create. Due to the majority of games these days involving violence, sex, gambling, drugs & crime, this is conditioning the youth of today to the sort of world they will create tomorrow.
With the advent of Virtual Reality now making these violent games even more immersive and realistic where the boundaries between games and reality is shrinking by the day, it is imperative we take some social and moral responsibility and start using technology to help create a better world by improving people's life's as well as respecting the environment and planet that sustains us.
Gambling is being forced onto kids more and more in the form of loot boxes where real money is asked for to receive a random prize and now its got so bad that money is actually needed to progress within the game. Everything seems to be geared around how much people can be exploited and how much money can be sucked out of them, this is even more wrong for kids. Read more on our previous post about this below:
We wish to bring people together, build online communities, encourage people to reach out and help strangers for the greater good of all. To encourage people to come and work together and to show how everyone benefits if they put their differences aside and start all rowing together. It will model the real world and also act as a simulation and training environment for how to make the real world a better place.
We wish to reach the kids who are glued to their phones and consoles and never go outside, this game will encourage them to get out into parks and interact with people in fun creative ways face to face instead of through their phones.
We are building the evolved benevolent version of the OASIS featured in the popular Ready Player One novel, which Spielberg is currently shooting the film for. This will be out in March in time for our prototype to be released, when everyone will be wanting to play the game of the movie.

It only seems to be a week or two before another terrorist attack or mass shooting or disaster after disaster. How much more suffering does there have to be before the people unite together to say enough is enough?
So please get in touch and get involved. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for people in ALL departments...
We want to hear your ideas and what you think should be in the game... As we said the whole world is the Our World team.
Please get involved on our forum here:
Other ways you can help is to donate something to our Crowd Funding page below:
We currently have a funding page here:
We would really appreciate if you could donate anything you can afford, even if its just a pound, if everyone did that then we would be able to massively accelerate this very urgent and important project for a world in need right now. I think everyone can justify a pound if it meant saving the world don't you think?
It's even better to spend a pound on this project rather than buying a lottery ticket since you have more chance of being hit by a car than winning the jackpot, then even by some fluke you did win, there is no point having millions if there is no world left to enjoy it on.
Think about it...
Also, please make sure you like our FaceBook page:
We need to build our online community to as big as possible before we launch new crowd funding campaigns on Kick Starter and start approaching investors...
So please join us and help spread awareness of Our World so together we can create a better world...
We are also really in need of funding or investors so if you know of any please send them our way! :) It would be really appreciated.
