A downloadable game for Windows

Popularity and Power - We All Want It!

But where does it come from?

  • Explore power and influence people
  • Play nice. Play mean. Experience the consequences
  • Play on the fiercest proving ground created by mankind: primary school

What will you do different?


At the core ‘Eli’ is a study in power between individuals, explored through a backdrop of bullying. Or, if you like, a look at bullying through the lens of power. The game is set at primary school, among children, as we are less inhibited before our morale develops.

In short, we think ‘Eli’ provides a great take on everyday power between individuals, with some neat game mechanics you just might not have seen before.

I'm thinking of using Eli as an example game for a narrative-based game creation class I'm going to teach in a middle school. Is there any content in the game that would be inappropriate for a middle school audience?

Hi LandonF,

Cool :-)

The script is cleaned up for swear-words (replaced with  ****). There are a few scenes that are meant to be for discussion, but if you have played the games with a few different paths I don't think there should be anything that would suddenly be very bad.

If you want to be 100 % sure you can browse through the script, it is not very long. By typing "esdump" (eli script dump) while in the game, it will output two files on your desktop: the script file, and a configuration file for Notepad++ to give colour highlighting (optional).

(Note that as long as you have the script file there, the game will use the one on your desktop, so you could change the story, but if you just rename or delete the file the game will revert back to using the script it was shipped with.)

Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with :-)

Kind regards,
