What is Radi-Aid?
Click here to play the Radi-Aid game.
Simple tap or mouse controls make it touch friendly and the online scoreboard will have you competing to be the top Santa in the world!
I designed and developed the game as unofficial fan work. It is available both as an HTML5 web game and as an installable Windows 8 app with touch support.
The game was made in 3 days over the Christmas break of 2012.
What do we(Radi-Aid and myself) want?
- Fundraising should not be based on exploiting stereotypes. Most of us just get tired if all we see is sad pictures of what is happening in the world, instead of real changes.
- We want better information about what is going on in the world, in schools, in TV and media.We want to see more nuances. We want to know about positive developments in Africa and developing countries, not only about crises, poverty and AIDS. We need more attention on how western countries have a negative impact on developing countries.
- Media: Show respect.Media should become more ethical in their reporting. Would you print a photo of a starving white baby without permission? The same rules must apply when journalists are covering the rest of the world as it does when they are in their home country.
- Aid must be based on real needs, not “good” intentions.Aid is just one part of a bigger picture; we must have cooperation and investments, and change other structures that hold back development in poorer countries. Aid is not the only answer.
