Unus Terra

This paper introduces a serious mobile game to foster social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of the game is to reach younger audiences and engage them in social distancing practices. Younger people often have a lower compliance towards these types of practices, so we see a casual game that also aims to be fun as a solution to improve their compliance over time. We report our findings from the study that was conducted to assess an early access version of the game, where the game was tested remotely by 15 players.
