New Delhi: In a first-of-its-kind effort, the Election Commission (EC) on Wednesday launched a video game titled 'Get Set Vote' as part of a series of edutainment material on voter awareness and education.

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

The video game, which can be played using the keyboard, gives out information and interesting details through 10 levels of mazes.

With every successive level, the information becomes more specific to subjects such as Indian democracy, registering to vote, ethical voting, help from EC and so on. The mazes also get more challenging as the player clears each level.

A part of EC's Systematic Voter Education and Electoral Participation (SVEEP) programme, the video game has been developed in collaboration with UNDP India. It is available for playing on the ECI website, www.Eci.Gov.In.
