I am working on my research as part of my academic curriculum, looking at "Video games for Cancer". There are a few video games made in the west, for cancer patients, which help you learn the disease better in an interactive format and help the player (in this case the patient) know more about the problem he or she is facing. It also contains cancer cells as enemies which the player has to blast using a Chemoblast to get a moral victory over the problem.
I would like to ask members of this forum a few questions:
1) What do video games mean to you?
2) Have you ever thought of video games being a means of recovery for a disease like cancer?
3) What do you think about this game and such methodologies?
Just as a short background on myself, I have been a Video Games developer for 3 years and am now pursuing my Post-Graduate Programme in Communications Management and Entrepreneurship. This research is a part of our course curriculum and is purely academic in nature.
You response would indeed be of great help for this academic research.
