Far From Home is an online 3D adventure game made for the Care Inspectorate, Scotland's care watchdog.
The game explores themes of trust, consequence and unfamiliarity in an action-packed and strange alien world.
Abertay students developed the game with the help of young people from Who Cares? Scotland and the Aberlour Childcare Trust - all of whom have had experience of being in care.
The game won a Bronze Award in the Games for Good category of the International Serious Play Awards.
It was also nominated in the Best Student Game category, at the TIGA Games Industry Awards, 2013.
