In 2020, we hosted the Game Addiction Talk in 10 schools in Singapore, reaching out to more than 9000 students with the support of Media Literacy Council .
As part of the Game Addiction Talk, the COMEBACK Game Dependency Test was made available to students. 2765 secondary school students in 7 schools completed the COMEBACK Game Dependency Test, and results showed that 19.4% of the Secondary students had game dependency. This translates to about 1 in 5 Secondary students in our sample.
