This New Horror Video Game Is Being Distributed For Free For One Important Reason

Video games are often considered just a form of entertainment. However, this medium can have more of a noble and educational agenda. Well that’s what the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) believes anyway, who developed the game One Leaves in the hope to protect teens from the harmful effects of tobacco.

One Leaves is a free, classic horror game. Placed in a cell, 4 players have to look for a way out by moving through smoky halls. Obviously, you won’t be able to rely on your cardio skills because this regularly hits zero because of tobacco. There will also be opponents there to complicate things further.

The aim of Roblox is that only one of the 4 players will survive. In fact, even by cooperating with other players, 3 of the participants will not make it out. This is a metaphor for the statistic that says only one in four smokers manage to completely stop smoking over the course of their lifetime.

Because of its educational purposes, this game will be available on Xbox One and PC for free and the FDA has even offered its services to the streamer Ninja to promote this game.
