Nightmare: Malaria

Posted by Armando Alves | 10-12-2013 00:22 | Category: Health, Developing World

Featuring Academy Award-winner Susan Sarandon, Nightmare: Malaria is the first iOS and Android game created by Emmy award-winning studio Psyop through a partnership with the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF).



The rich visual storytelling — as expected from Psyop — brings the player into the bloodstream of a young girl infected by malaria. With 18 levels to go, avoiding killer mosquitoes or collecting teddy bears make us aware that one of the most effective means of preventing malaria is sleeping under a mosquito net, something that Against Malaria Foundation has been providing for several years.

You can download the free game for iOS or Android or donate to help stop malaria here (paying for the app would be a good idea if Apple & Google didn’t take their cut).
