Search and Rescue

On 6 February 2023, a devastating earthquake hit Turkey. The aftermath of the disaster was huge, and many lives were lost. Bahçeşehir University Game Lab and The US Embassy Consulate collaborated for Techcamp 2024 hackathon, to raise awareness on the anniversary of the earthquake. The participants were asked to develop games about what can be done before, during or after an earthquake.

Search and Rescue focuses on after the earthquake. The concept is to save people from collapsed buildings and help them, while managing the resources. The player needs to send search parties, paramedics, fire fighters, lights etc. to the places they are needed. Time passes and more help arrives, but the urgency of rescuing injured people also increases. It is a game about management of the aftermath of a disaster.
