New, 1 comment

High School Story, a mobile game in which players build their dream high schools and how to navigate its social situations, is now available on Kindle devices, developer Pixelberry Studios announced today.

According to Pixelberry, the High School Story app connects more than 100 teen victims of cyberbullying with professional counselors each week, and has already reached more than two million players overall.

In High School Story, players build their own high schools and populate them with activities, such as joining sports teams, planning homecoming activities, forming friendships and romantic relationships and dealing with bullies. Players will guide their characters through these situations as they create their vision of high school life.

Recently Pixelberry launched a new cyberbullying-themed quest for High School Story, created in partnership with anti-cyberbullying charity Cybersmile. Pixelberry has also raised $200,000 in donations to date for the charity through High School Story in-app purchases.

The Kindle version will allow players to share in-game progress with friends via Amazon Game Circle.

"Engaging with our players about important issues like cyberbullying has been a very rewarding and humbling experience," Pixelberry CEO Oliver Miao said in a press statement. "We're excited to offer Kindle players a new and fun game that also might help them through some of the difficult phases of growing up."

High School Story is also available for iOS and Android. Check out Polygon's in-depth feature on the game's development.
