I’m Positive is an educational interactive narrative interspersed with quirky mini-games. You play as a young man, who finds out from a former partner that he may be HIV positive. You are then presented with a series of choices to either get tested and seek treatment, or ignore the circumstances.
Throughout the game, the player learns pertinent information regarding HIV, misconceptions around it, testing, treatment, disclosure, and the consequences of not getting treatment.
In the United States, there are over a million people living with HIV. 1 in 6 of those are unaware of their status. 60% of youth with HIV do not know they are infected. Those that are unaware of their HIV status are disproportionately more likely to spread HIV.
The CDC recommends everyone between the ages 13 and 64 get tested at least once.
We want to encourage people to get tested, reduce the stigma, and increase knowledge about HIV.
