Many around the world the world are adjusting to following the "stay at home" protocol urged by local and national governments as a countermeasure against the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). While it in no way compare to the cruel hardships of those severely impacted by the pandemic, a new more sedentary lifestyle has forced a lot of newly indoors-types to find a source of entertainment other than binging Tiger King and Animal Cross hijinks.

For those on the edge of cabin fever boredom, a new Japanese flash browser game might just be the thing. To fit the times, it's appropriately titled "Social Distancing", and sends you on a quest to disrupt clusters of people not following social distancing protocol at the push of a button!

The game is available in English and Japanese. The rules are simple, you play as either United States President Donald Trump (English) or Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike. As you click you hear either "social distancing" or in Japanese "mitsu" (3密,the tree C's--closed spaces with poor ventilation, crowded areas and close-contact settings).

Anytime someone comes within your circle you lose a mask (your health), along the way Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe will gift you with two masks and even meat. Good luck!
