Giant Otter Technologies an “Online Game Changer” 07/16/2013

MBBP client, and MassChallenge finalist, Giant Otter Technologies was touted as an “online game changer” in the Boston Herald and we agree!

Giant Otter Technologies creates data-driven improvisational role-playing virtual simulations that can help change behaviors and improve relationships. In short, their online games aim to teach people social skills and better human interactions.

Their first project is developing a three-dimensional, online anti-bullying game in which middle and high school students will play the role of the victim or bystander and ultimately learn to empathize. Future projects will tackle other challenging situations such as teaching the military cultural interaction skills, allowing sales people to practice with virtual customers, teaching doctors to improve their communication with patients and training managers to lead their staffs.

Keep up the good work, Giant Otter!
