The players take the role of a "Disaster Hero" to help different families prepare for various disasters. Each disaster scenario provides a variety of game experiences and quizzes on what was learned. Points are earned throughout the experience and displayed on the Disaster Hero website. Downloadable learning activities and checklists targeted to teachers and parents also will be available on the website.
"Legacy's success in developing casual games such as The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes and House, M.D., combined with our long experience creating medical simulations for adults and kids, makes us an ideal partner for this project. It's a privilege to be able to work with the American College of Emergency Physicians on this very important project," said Ariella Lehrer, President and CEO of Legacy Interactive.
