Besides extending hands to people in need overseas, Mercy Relief is also embarking on local projects to raise awareness about the ongoing humanitarian needs.
Produced by six final year students from Nanyang Polytechnic’s School of Interactive and Digital Media, “Little Mercy” is a platform to engage and educate children on the operations of humanitarian relief.
“Little Mercy” consists of three different games – Little Jellybean Adventure, Speedy Rescue and Relief Rush. Designed and produced over a period of three months, each game comes with unique characters to ‘transport’ the players into the world of humanitarian workers and is suitable for children aged five to twelve.
Besides imparting knowledge on humanitarian work, the online games aim to raise awareness amongst the younger generation on the mechanics of humanitarian work in a simple and fun way. At the same time, the games also encourage them to avoid being passive bystanders to the humanitarian crises around them. The games are accessible to children within and beyond Singapore.
The “Little Mercy” games team are:
Nigel Low – Designer of Little Jelly Bean Adventure
Wilson Choo – Programmer of Little Jelly Bean Adventure
Adly Idzuan – Designer of Relief Rush
Ronson Fong – Programmer of Relief Rush
May Thu Maung – Designer of Speedy Rescue
Olivia Lau – Programmer of Speedy Rescue
and their mentors: Josef Shazarin, Chua Bee Luan and Melissa Lim
