This game was created to demonstrate how the immune system deals with viruses on a daily basis and educate on way to defeat many known illnesses.
What it does
White Knights uses a tower defense system with waves of deadly viruses invading. To succeed, the player must construct a strong defense system and manage energy costs for upgrading and boosting.
How I built it
Built using Unity's WebGL compiler and uploaded to OpenShift's scalable pod system.
Challenges I ran into
Research medical and health information to create something educational without being too scholarly. The result is a nice balance of immune system simulation and health data.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Displaying educational information using a game format. We have created a fun and intuitive way to learn about various ways to keep a strong immune system.
What I learned
Viruses are no joke and our immune system has its hands full daily to keep our bodies healthy.
What's next for White Knights
*We will continue to update the game with: *More maps and viruses *Improved graphics for defense towers *Links to medical sites to continue education in areas of interest. *Multi-language support (Chinese, German, Spanish, Russian)
