ABOUT

WHAT IS GO VIRAL!

GO VIRAL! is a 5-minute game that helps protect you against COVID-19 misinformation. You’ll learn about some of the most common strategies used to spread false and misleading information about the virus. Understanding these tricks allows you to resist them the next time you come across them online (you can read more about how this works HERE).

Pay it forward – fight the spread of misinformation by challenging your friends and family to GO VIRAL!

WHO SHOULD PLAY THIS GAME?

The recommended age for GoViral! is 15+. Although the game has received a PEGI-age rating of 3 (meaning the game has been deemed SUITABLE for persons age 3 and up), the game does include some themes that may be interpreted as sensitive, especially to people under the age of 15. If you are unsure, always ask for parental consent.

DATA PROTECTION & FAIR USE

We do not collect identifying information or other data from individual players. However, we do track how many people have played the game and visited the website, entirely anonymously, using Google Analytics (which uses cookies).

GO VIRAL! contains references to pop culture and makes use of images that may contain copyrighted material. As these images have been significantly altered for a limited and transformative purpose, they fall under fair use. Specifically, the original work has been transformed by adding new expression or meaning to the original copyrighted image. More information about fair use and memes can be found HERE and HERE. In addition, the European Parliament has STATED that “… memes or GIFs can be shared freely”, and its copyright directive specifically EXEMPTS memes from being subject to copyright claims in the European Union.

The game does not feature content that is likely to be perceived as graphically shocking. While it does contain some references to real-world events, its scenarios are entirely fictional. An effort has been made to make the game as inclusive as possible, and it can be enjoyed by players from all backgrounds.

WHO IS BEHIND GO VIRAL!?

This game is the product of a collaboration between the SOCIAL DECISION-MAKING LAB at the  University of Cambridge, DROGGUSMANSON, and the UK CABINET OFFICE.
