In May 2017, LabX staff took Extreme Event on the road to Seoul, South Korea for the Asia Pacific Disaster Resilience Centre’s (APDRC) first Interactive Innovation Workshop – part of the organization’s new Resilience Innovation Initiative. LabX staff provided the participants with a brief background and overview of the game, including how many aspects of Extreme Event ties directly into their new initiative.
36 players from more than 10 countries, including Mongolia, Bangladesh, the Philippines, and India, experienced Extreme Event: Rock City and participated in a post-game feedback session. Players were very enthusiastic about the game and its potential to be used in their own communities.
APDRC’s next steps include translating the Extreme Event game materials into Korean for further pilot testing, gathering additional feedback, and working with LabX staff to create a version that would be easily adapted for use in a variety of their partner countries.
