New Delhi, Oct 1: In a first of its kind effort, the Election Commission of India has developed a video game titled "Get! Set! Vote!" amongst a series of edutainment materials on voter awareness and education.

The game has been created to broadly engage citizens of all age groups to learn about democracy and electoral process.

"In a fun-filled and interactive manner, the video game gives out pieces of information and interesting details in 10 levels of mazes," an official from the Election Commission said.

"With every successive level, the information becomes more specific to subjects such as Indian democracy, registering to vote, ethical voting, help from Election Commission and so on. The mazes also get more challenging with the player clearing each level," the official said.

Under the Commission's SVEEP (Systematic Voter Education and Electoral Participation) programme, the video game has been developed in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme, India.

It is available on Election Commission's website www.eci.gov.in.

The official added that more "edutainment" materials will be disseminated through the election machinery, educational institutions and related agencies for addressing targeted population.
