Two Students Akram Khan and Anushree Warade from XLRI, Jamshedpur (Xavier School of Management) have created a game “Bhag Corona” to ease up the tension that is going on amid the lockdown due to the pandemic. The game has been played over 5000 times within one day of its release. The Game is about educating people about the virus to stay safe which aligns with the W.H.O guidelines for hygiene against Coronavirus. The game features the PM, Narendra Modi and has the chant of “Corona Go” in the background. The game is available for free and one can access it from any device.
Khan and Warade said in a statement, “ We realized people are bored and restless during the quarantine period and a game would be the most effective way to spread the message. We also plan to create more games spreading awareness and a social message in the future”

About the Game:
“Bhag Corona” is an educational shooting game. The player has to shoot a vaccine on viruses that spawn on the screen. The game’s avatar for the shooter is Modi who replaced the syringe in an earlier design. The player has to score higher to reach a higher level and the virus becomes smarter and hard to kill gradually. Initially, the virus only moves horizontally but at advanced levels, it learns to move in different directions and at a faster speed. If the player misses the virus, the game ends and an educational message pops up on the screen such as “FACE: Don’t touch it” and “HANDS: Wash them often and so on”.
