Statistics say that every hour, two girls are trafficked in India. MISSING – Game For A Cause, has been developed by Missing Link Trust to generate awareness around trafficking and comes under the genre of ‘Games for Change’ by tackling the first ‘P for Prevention’ of the United Nation’s four P’s against trafficking. Launched in 2016, available in five languages, the application has seen over 8 lakh downloads so far. MISSING is a role-playing game which puts players in the shoes of the victim and provides them insights into the world of prostitution. The storyline is meant to invoke discomfort and through intense, claustrophobic experiences, it provides a real-time depiction of what a victim goes through. Through the game, the application aims to increase mass-awareness and build empathy amongst the players. The MISSING game is the winner of the NASSCOM Indie game of the Year and a winner of SM4E 2018.
