This full-body video game lets you see the invisible effects that your choice to vaccinate, or not, has on those around you. As you play, you explore a public health story rooted in gut-level truths and head-level facts. Shadowpox debuted during the 70th World Health Assembly in Geneva, where The Lancet called it “one of the most powerful and playful ways to illustrate both the individual and population-level implications of community immunity.” Stay tuned for Shadowpox: A Torch in the Firewall, a science fiction storyworld co-created throughout 2019 with young artists on four continents.
