Young video gamers incorporate the big issues that interest them into game design, in the hope that their concepts will become a reality.
Bafta has announced 51 finalists for its Young Game Designer of the Year competition.
Among the shortlisted is Finley, 11, from Dorset, who designed Seas of Salvation, where the player scavenges waste and plastic from the ocean to progress.
Habiballah, 14, from Berkshire, decided to make a game called Rewind, which examines five stages of grief.
Meanwhile, 15-year-old Emily from Surrey has been shortlisted for A Splash of Color, where the main character – inspired by Covid-19 restrictions – restores color to a declining world.
The winners, who will see their concepts turned into working games, are due to be announced on Thursday.
