Indiecade Jamming the Curve

In the summer of 2020, DILAC began a collaboration with the independent games organization Indiecade and the National Academy of sciences to organize a game jam in which participants made science-games about the COVID pandemic. The jam was held in September 2020. The projects can be found on DILAC also funded graduate and undergraduate student researchers to build two games. Dinostore was about proper public health behavior, while Essential Workers demonstrated the difficult decisions facing essential workers during the pandemic. Essential Workers was awarded "Most Potential" at the INDCOR Complexity Jam in 2020 and its epidemiological model, adapted for both html and Unity, was provided for free on the Lab's Github.
