ARS Technica writes FEMA has teamed up with Legacy Interactive to create a web-based game called Disaster Hero:
The game, which is being funded by a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), will aim to educate players on the different types of disasters and how to be prepared in the event that they happen.
In the game, players will take on the role of the titular Disaster Hero as he visits different families, helping them prepare for various disasters including earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and tornadoes. The game itself will consist of a mish-mash of genres, covering everything from time management and puzzles to quizzes and hidden object scenes.
Players will also get to experience "simulation gameplay," which aims to teach them usable skills, such as applying pressure to stop bleeding.
