Coronavirus (576) New social distancing computer game

8 May, 2020


There is a considerable amount of work suggesting that computer games can encourage healthy behaviours.

With that in mind I have teamed up with computer game creator Martin Jacob to produce the first online game to encourage social distancing, and also communicate exponential distributions re saving lives.

It’s called Can You Save The World, and is aimed at children, but adults seem to enjoy it too.

We are already getting lots of traffic, it’s free to play. It works on any laptop or computer.

Any feedback or thoughts most welcome
