Dubai Police release new game to raise COVID-19 awareness

It’s no surprise that gaming is one of the biggest sources of entertainment during self-isolation, and to educate gamers and little ones in a fun way, Dubai Police has launched an all-new title.

The education game Stay Safe is a free online game created by Dubai Police’s General Department of Artificial Intelligence, all to raise awareness on COVID-19.

Now available online, the multiple-choice adventure sees a Dubai resident make decisions on what to do in various scenarios, including putting on masks and gloves, what to do at a supermarket and when to wash to your hands.

The game will award points for making the right decisions, and has replay value so players can test other possible outcomes.

“Dubai Police developed ‘Stay Safe’ video game as it prioritises and emphases on the importance of raising public knowledge during such events,” said General Director of AI at Dubai Police Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi.

“In addition, the use of video games in education is a very promising step.”

Dubai Police has explored educational games before, including Dubai Drift, Turbo League and more which have been downloaded over 33 million times via the App Store and Google Play store.
