Over at the Guardian, Keith Stuart blogs about a mobile title designed to mitigate culture shock:

Nipan Maniar an academic and games expert at the University of Portsmouth has developed a mobile game deisgned to help international students understand life in Britain. Including such moments of cultural awakening as ‘going to the pub’ and ‘watching people being affectionate to each other in public’, the guide is intended for those who may have spent their formative years in more reserved cultures.

The mobile phone is the perfect delivery method for this sort of edutainment project – almost all international students will have one, while only a minority may be equipped with a DS or PSP.
