ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Students at the Rochester Institute of Technology created video games designed to help flatten the curve.
It’s part of an international competition called “Jamming the Curve” to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Students in the Games for Change course had three weeks to create a game that helped promote pandemic behaviors that can help protect people.
They came up with four free-to-play games:
Five winning teams will each receive $1,000 and be featured at the IndieCade Anywhere and Everywhere Festival. They will also get the chance to develop their ideas to win a $20,000 game development grant.
Winners will be announced on Oct. 16 through Oct. 18.
