DescriptionAs part of their capstone project, seniors at Bradley University collaborated with the Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation to design and develop Wake Up, Koala! The primary objective of this game is to raise awareness about Sjögren's (SHOW-grins), an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system attacks moisture-producing glands. The primary mechanic involves water and dropping the water in a way that will wake up Mama Koala, who, similar to many Sjögren's patients, is very tired. This puzzle game features over 100 levels across 7 worlds, boasts 20 achievements, and a daily trivia section.
