DescriptionThe primary objective of Abhi ya Khabi is to promote social engagement and inspire reflection and informed decision making for rural and tribal communities in India. Abhi ya Kabhi introduces players with low to mid-level literacy, and little game-literacy from rural areas of India to a gamification context where they have to make choices that reflect their real life. By investing money into different actions (from volunteering to building a new house) players collect smiles in reward and protect themselves from life's potential traps. With the aim of collecting the maximum number of smiles, players must decide their strategy and build their own path to happiness through the different items and challenges of the game.
