When you play Relive, you can chose among two different gaming modes: Story mode and CPR Tournament mode. Today we want to introduce you the last one, heart of this applied game since it is designed with educational purpose. Tournament mode allows multiplayer sessions in genuine hot seat style. This means that the players will use the same device, taking turns and trying to achieve the best performance.
We imagined this mode to give its best in schools or at home, where it can provide a reliable system to introduce CPR and raise awareness about it. We want Relive to be precise and easy to use because we hope it will encourage people to attend CPR classes. Even if the game is technologically advanced, a certified professional course with a qualified staff can’t be replaced by a software.
Even if our CPR protocol aims to be as most realistic as possible, we wanted to integrate it in a more playful setting for this tournament mode. Score tracking has been introduced, rewarding the player when he performs the protocol correctly and with confidence.
While playing Relive, the CPR protocol can be performed using different peripherals. You can play the game with the standard pair keyboard and mouse, or you can achieve better performances and a more immersive experience using tracking cameras: Intel Perceptual Camera or Microsoft Kinect. Other peripherals are being considered and hopefully we will announce them in the close future.
There are no limits to the number of people who can join a tournament, so this mode is perfect if you want to challenge your classmates, your coworkers or your whole family. Another interesting feature is the possibility to organise an asynchronous tournament. You can challenge somebody who is going to play in another moment or in a different place, saving your result while waiting to see who made the best score.
We are working on different rescue simulations, in order to provide a wider range of experiences. Who are you going to challenge?
