Release date: Let's get this on steam! so that classrooms, interested and developing nations can benefit from it!
The Life Cycle of Malaria is a free edutainment game that informs players about malaria in a creative manner. By allowing players to play as the mosquito and the malaria parasite, and interacting with different stages of the disease's life-cycle, this application offers a great alternative way of learning about malaria.

The concern of malaria holds a formidable place in global public health. Over 200 million estimated cases of malaria were reported in 2012. The idea is that coming generations, classrooms, special interested and developing nations could benefit from such a game. Let's bring it to steam. Together we can make the world a more aware and smarter place!


• Completely free
• Play from the perspective of the antagonist, the - Anopheles mosquito - and the - Plasmodium parasite -.
• Edutainment, aims to be educational as well as entertaining.
• Great alternative to traditional linear mediums (like books, videos), as it lets players interact and learn. Providing a holistic sense of how malaria aspects are connected.
• Learn why mosquito bites itch, why pregnant women are more likely to be bitten, and how the parasite manages to survive.
• The first game of its kind which tries to visualize the malaria life cycle in 3D.

If you own an android mobile device you can already try the mobile version of the game here:

Its' good to see such educational games on Steam, as they're one of the best methods to learn new skills. Like simulators with better graphics and lower entry requirements running on a PC. Great work! Voted.

Interesting if a bit crude-looking; too bad it’s not for Linux.
