The Dilemma Game Stay Safe Edition is the most recent add-on to the Dilemma Game!
Users learn about personal hygiene, how to correctly cough and sneeze, why frequent hand washing is important and much more. Through storytelling, users learn how to act amongst others, how and why to keep distance and what one can do to stay healthy; avoid visiting others homes, avoid events with larger groups, avoid shaking hands and hugging. Users also learn how to act if one experiences symptoms, or if you are amongst others who feel ill.
The Dilemma game invites users on a journey to Freetown, Sierra Leone where the user can explore the big city’s School, Market, Health Clinic, Church and Mosque. Throughout the game, users are met with dilemmas and learning flows, where health education and storytelling will empower, educate and engage users in learning about personal hygiene, social distancing and how to stay safe.
The visual design, the stories, main characters, and guiding characters, as well as the background music and sound effects has been co-created in partnership with Save the Children Sierra Leone, Save the Children Denmark, students from Limkokwing University and creative and dedicated girls and boys from Sierra Leone.
The Dilemma game can be played individually, in a small group, in a youth club, girls/boys club or in a classroom setting. When played in groups, the Dilemma game works as a dialogue tool - empowering users with a language to discuss health amongst each other, and a safe learning space where taboo topics become fun and normalized through games and storytelling.
