Zorbs Reloaded

Zorbs Reloaded is a city building strategy game with an RPG mission component. Players are tasked to rebuild a destroyed planet called Zorb, while preserving some core values like integrity, fairness and acceptance. There is a "second view" of the game, which is happening on Earth and is accessed through "missions" from Zorb. Through missions, players can earn points by figuring out crime related scenarios. The earned points serve as currency and can be used to advance development back on Zorb.

The story of the Zorbs has been developed by UNODC's Education for Justice (E4J) initiative and aims at teaching primary level students about values and skills. As such, it provides an ideal backstory and setting for a mobile game for secondary level students, which builds on and further develops the elements of that story. The primary level part tells the story of an utopian planet, where there is an abundance of resources, and poverty and crime are non-existent. After many years of improper use of those resources and by not respecting basic values, the planet's inhabitants end up destroying their planet. Four of them, however, survive by upholding certain values and flee the planet, ending up on Earth. The game story starts when the four friends decide it is time to go back home and rebuild their planet.
