In a locked-down world, the feeling of helplessness can be overwhelming but we can all use our computers to defeat the virus from the comfort of our homes. So, we are designing a mobile application named ‘COVID WAR’ in our local language (Bangla) with an aim to improve people’s knowledge of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The mobile game will allow the user to take a journey where he/she will play the role of ‘virus detective’ and fight against the virus. Each stage will be based on different cases or situations where the user has to find a clue that will equip him/her to stop the pandemic. Throughout the game, we will educate the user by providing them health massages while they are playing the game. Also, this will not only educate people on how to change their behavior but also help them to explore the contents with adventure. To increase the interest and engagement levels, case stories will be given on the situation where people are getting affected by the virus epidemic and they have to solve those cases to stop them. This will ideate a user on the dos and don'ts protocol during the pandemic.
On completion of each level, users can share the score or achievements with their friends and also challenge them. In addition, they can also share their achievement on social media or can use effect (avatar) on their profile pictures. When a user answers the question correctly, they will earn points and badges. We will give prizes to the top player each week.
