Hyderabad: The swine flu outbreak though might have triggered panic buttons across the globe, it has definitely provided online games developers a new dimension to entertain their gamers.
Cashing in on the gamers quest for new games which are fun, entertaining and keep them abreast with latest happenings, online games developers are now concentrating on designing games in tune with the current event and trends.
City-based 7 Seas Technologies Limited has developed a new swine flu game on its www.onlinerealgames.com website and claims it to be a big hit with the gamers.Fun game
The game is simple and yet fun to play. Many virus infected people would be alighting at the airport and gamers have to give medicines to cure them. Hundred points are given for successfully curing a person and 100 points are deducted, if a gamer fails to cure them.
“Nearly 20,000 gamers have already played the game in the last fortnight and we expect the number to increase further,” says 7 Seas Technologies Limited Managing Director L. Maruti Sanker.
It is not just the swine flu outbreak, right from the former US President, George Bush’s press conference in Baghdad last year, Big Bang 2008, election-based political games, and Mumbai terror attack to the recently concluded Indian Premier League cricket tournament; many games are designed based on such situations.
