The dilemma game invites users on a journey to Freetown, Sierra Leone where the user can explore the big city’s School, Market, Health Clinic, Church and Mosque. Throughout the game, users are met with dilemmas and learning flows, where educational quizzes, storytelling, interactive videos and mini-games will empower, educate and engage users in learning about Sexual Rights, Puberty, Pregnancy, STI’s and Contraceptives.
The visual design, the stories, main characters, and guiding characters, as well as the background music, sound effects and the voices of the game, has been co-created in partnership with Save the Children Sierra Leone, Save the Children Denmark, BRAC Uganda and creative and dedicated girls and boys from Sierra Leone and Uganda.
The Dilemma game can be played individually, in a small group, in a youth club, girls/boys club or in a classroom setting. When played in groups, the Dilemma game works as a dialogue tool - empowering users with a language to discuss SRHR amongst each other, and a safe learning space where taboo topics become fun and normalized through games and storytelling.
