First-ever game to raise public awareness on the deadly Ebola virus and its preventive measures now available on Android smart phones.
ChopUp Games, co-founded by TED Fellow Zubair Abubakar and acclaimed game designer Bayo Puddicombe, today released Ebola Strike force, the first local game to raise awareness about the deadly Ebola virus and its preventive measures.
Ebola Strike Force tells the story of research scientists and doctors who discovered that they could develop the cure from a serum, which could only be extracted from patient X with the help of a nanobot. The player takes control of the nanobot and journeys through patient X’s body to extract the serum. The serum is then used to create a vaccine to cure infected people. In the process the player unlocks health tips that can be used to maintain good hygiene in real life.
Ebola Strike Force represents a new paradigm in mobile gaming, empowering users not only to experience thrilling gameplay, but also to learn about the Ebola virus in an interactive and immersive fashion.
