Mobiele gameproduction “Emily vertelt…”
What if you, as a child or teenager, have some medical conditions that you don’t fully understand yourself or you find it hard to share this within your social circles? This mobile serious game is developed from this starting point.
Emily vertelt.. is an adventure game that also teaches the player about AIS (Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome), a genetic deviation and the personal experiences of Emily with AIS.
Emily’s experiences is no fiction
The real Emily tells in this app about her experiences with AIS. The letters AIS literally stand for Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome. In difficult words, this means that the body is insensitive to androgens, or “male hormones”. This manifests itself in a number of physical characteristics, the meaning of the word syndrome.

Explain this in a simple way..
But how do you explain this to a child who has to deal with it, or to boyfriends and girlfriends or within the family? The real Emily has experienced that this is very important to do. Openness has ensured that the real Emily has learned to deal with AIS very well.
AOS is a condition that is not easy to understand. Nor to tell about it. With this game-concept you will discover new information in every “level” while you experience exciting adventures and dash through a hospital. It is intended for children and adolescents, but adults can learn just as much from it!
Purpose of this app
The aim of this game is to make information transfer easier for children and young people on medical topics and more accessible in relation to their social environment. This app is based on personal experiences of Emily.
The authenticity of Emily makes you realize that this is not just any fantasy game. In the same way as for AIS, other diseases or conditions can also be processed in such a game.

School assignment: innovations in healthcare
The idea was presented in 2018 during the “Smart lectures” by four VWO 5 students from Develstein College in Zwijndrecht. The smart lectures were organized by the Municipality of Papendrecht for HAVO / VWO students in the Drechtsteden region.
The theme was “innovations in healthcare”. Several teams gave presentations at the Albert Schweizer Hospital in Dordrecht. A panel of experts has selected Emily’s team as the winner.
