Cre­ated by Vic­to­ria Park-based drug and al­co­hol coun­selling ser­vice Holyoake, the ad­ven­ture game helps young peo­ple learn cru­cial life skills.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Angie Paske­vi­cius said the award was tes­ta­ment to the game’s cut­ting-edge ap­proach and its po­ten­tial to help young peo­ple around the globe.

“We’re very ex­cited these awards have recog­nised the in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment that DRUM­BEAT Quest is and the tremen­dous ef­fort and team- work it took to de­velop it,” she said. “Since launch­ing DRUM­BEAT

Quest just a few months ago, we’ve fielded in­quiries from schools and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions both in Aus­tralia and over­seas and this award will, no doubt, add to the in­ter­est it’s been get­ting.”
