In 90 Days, the learning game developed by PRELOADED, Save the Children and World Vision, has been awarded a Gold Medal at the 2022 Serious Play Awards.  

The Serious Play Conference brings together professionals who are exploring the use of game-based learning, sharing their experience and working together to shape the future of training and education. 

 “We are honoured to have this project recognised by the Serious Play community”, said Hattie Foster, Strategy Director at PRELOADED. “As a studio we believe in the power of play to create transformational experiences beyond entertainment and we are proud of the important impact In 90 Days is having on learners across the world.”

Tim Carpentier, Learning Solutions Specialist, Humanitarian Leadership Academy, Save the Children UK previously commented: “Working with the PRELOADED team was a very positive experience. They were professional, solutions-focused, and very hard working, which resulted in our ability to fold a wealth of humanitarian and learning and development content into an engaging and impactful game. I am pleased to have partnered with PRELOADED and feel proud of the product we have created together.”

Developed by PRELOADED as part of a global L&D effort from Save the Children and World Vision, In 90 Days is a serious learning game that explores the scenarios, trade-off dilemmas and challenging decisions that field managers face while responding to crises, helping them train to effectively lead humanitarian emergencies.

Investment in early preparedness has proved to reduce the costs of humanitarian action by more than 50% (UNICEF) – saving lives by facilitating swifter responses. 

Yet traditional, linear e-learning doesn’t provide a stepping stone between the training material and the field. In 90 Days is a mobile game designed to provide field managers with a safe space to learn, fail and develop situational skills – to be equipped for what they will face practically and emotionally during an emergency response.

In 90 Days was one of five educational games developed to support Non-Profit organisations that were cited for excellence in the 2022 International Serious Play Awards Program. You can play and download the game via Kaya Connect here.
