Littleloud is probably best known for its mildly controversial mobile game Sweatshop HD.

Well, the Littleloud studio may have been closed down last year, but it's back together once more for one last dance.

That's right: Littleloud has teamed up with UK broadcaster Channel 4 to produce an anti-bullying digital boardgame for iOS called Sticks and Stones.

It's a stylish game with a cardboard cut-out aesthetic, voice narration, and a satisfying dice-swiping core.

You play as one of four kids going to school in the town of Trumpsville for the first time. Starting at the bottom of the "social ladder", you have to gain kudos by completing bullying and victim mini-games.

Sticks and Stones

At the start, you'll inevitably be bullied. So, expect to be answering abusive phone calls (or not answering them), blocking punches, or hiding in lockers.

Later, you'll have the chance to be a bully. Yep, this is a 'be a bully' or 'be bullied' world.

As with Sweatshop HD, the intention behind Sticks and Stones is to "pull back the curtain on a social system, provoking reflection and, perhaps, action".

You can download Sticks and Stones on the App Store right now for free.
