Since the game that we are creating is a Prison Simulator the age rating category that we selected this for was the 35+ and there are a couple reasons for this. The first is that we decided to make this game a 2D side scroller it doesn’t appeal so much tot he younger audience as they have been brought up in the new intense visual games whereas 35+ feel nostalgic with these games. The second reason is due to it being set within a prison it means that this is a harsh but realistic environment that contains violence and drugs. These are not good influences on the younger audience.
I feel like this was the correct category for this game however if the setting was different it could possibly be within another category as the art style shows bright, vibrant colours which relate to a younger audience.
