Designed as an interactive educational tool, Code Blue is a game with a mission: to provide disaster victims at an evacuation camp with critical resources like shelter, water, sanitation and food before time runs out. The game, targeted at youths aged 13 and above, has four levels of difficulty. The player takes on the role of a humanitarian worker at the various stages of a relief mission.
For instance, in Level 1, the mission is to help victims of a typhoon-affected community. Progress to Level 4 and the game will include attending to injured victims, clearing debris and managing a team to assist with immediate needs – all with an allocated budget.
Code Blue is the second game to come out of Mercy Relief’s collaboration with final-year students from Nanyang Polytechnic’s School of Interactive and Digital Media.
