VR on Pandemic


Nowadays, we are surrounded by numerous disasters such as COVID-19, heatwave, flood and wildfire. Disasters have evolved due to climte change and rapid urbanization, and their scale and frequency have become unpredictable and expansive. Therefore, it is important to understand what disaster is and how we can cope with the impacts of disasters.

"VR on Pandemic" aims to inform players how to prevent, prepare for, and respond to pandemics through gameplay and quizzes. At the same time, it suggests how climate and pandemic are related.

This game was developed by APDRC in collaboration with Hansung University.

How to play

◾ Hit viruses by shooting the vaccine gun with the syringe. If you are exposed to the virus, you will be infected. You can survive up to 3 times even after contacting viruses. However, after 3 times, you will fail your mission. As the level goes up, the types and speed of viruses will change.

◾ If you hit 10 viruses in a row, 1 mask will be provided as a reward. When you wear the mask, you will be protected from viruses for 10 seconds.

◾ While playing the game, you will take two sets of quizzes. If you answer all the questions correctly for each set, you will obtain a disinfectant spray. The spray allows you to shoot the viruses with both hands.
