Novel Containment is a challenging little fast paced strategy game where you attempt to contain a coronavirus outbreak in a busy airport.
In Novel Containment you are tasked with preventing the spread of a Covid-19 outbreak in an international airport. Viewed from a top-down perspective, you can hover your mouse over passengers and see if they’re infected by the color of the ring that surrounds them. When you spot an infected passenger then you need to click on them to quarantine them before they board their plane and spread it more.
Things start off fairly easily, but as you progress the airport gets busier and you are given more parameters for the people you need to quarantine. You unlock upgrades to aid your job, but you also have to manage the anxiety and public panic levels of the public. Keeping the virus contained isn’t going to be easy!
Novel Containment is a well thought out and addictive game that offers a real challenge and demonstrates how hard it is to contain a virus in crowded areas. The top-down visuals work well, it’s easy to pick up and play and it doesn’t cheapen the effects of Covid-19 – in-fact a proportion of all donations will be given to the U.N. Solidarity Fund.
