Ready to get rid of Covid? In COVID Invaders, you can! That’s a new video game from 16-year-old Minnesotan Josh Ternyak, who built the game to help show kids what a vaccine can do to the virus.
According to WNEP, the web-based video game can be played on phones and computers. The player controls a syringe and shoots the vaccine at the oncoming virus. “Many people liked it,” Josh said. “I saw at one point that 1,000 people were playing it, so that got me really happy.”
He added that his goal is to “spread awareness about the vaccine and to shed the vaccine in a positive light because many people online are saying negative things about it.”
