In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, staying clean and healthy is top of mind for most consumers -- in light of this, one game designer is aiming to create a COVID-19 augmented reality game that's both topical and entertaining.
According to a GoFundMe published by Waleed Nasir, this game will incorporate elements from both the online and offline world. Users are to project their device onto any room of their choosing. From there, bacteria will begin to appear, tasking the user with sanitizing the room and effectively killing the virus. Users are able to select different tools to kill the virus, offering a versatile experience for adults and children alike.
In addition to offering a distraction while consumers are practicing social distancing, this game aims to educate players about cleanliness and sanitization.
