Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

For kids

I know it’s very violent and it’s about burning possessions. But I’m a 21 year old man and I recently bought my 10 year old brother this game and when he was 5-7 he used to play it on my Laptop it’s very kid friendly and I don’t see how it could be 13+.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence

Little Inferno is an addicting game that is geared towards older kids. It has great physics and is fun to play with, and it's fairly addicting. It can be mildly disturbing, and it has a couple things related to drugs and alcohol such as "Mommy Meds" and midlife crisis wine, but they're in there for humor. They're by no means advocating anything. It does have some environmental and anti-consumerism themes, but overall, the main message is, "Don't waste your life and time. Get out, meet people, explore. Use the time you have wisely. Make your life worthwhile." As for age, I'd recommend it for ages 12-13 and up. In short, it is an excellent indie game with a deep meaning, and is, in my opinion, worth every penny.
