Why we like it

  • Fully responsive, looks good and works well on all platforms and devices.
  • Scenario driven with branching – interactive challenges take learns on a quests to solve a medieval mystery.
  • Story-based – narrative stages, character witnesses.
  • Feedback – at each stage of the investigation.
  • Progression – a dynamic map allows the player-learner to see what stage they are at and what’s left to do.
  • Scoring – opportunities to gather points and bonuses, unlocking the next stage.
  • Dynamic polling – get to vote on solving the mystery and see how other players are voting.

How to improve this elearning

Sound effects would really bring this to life, or more specifically a ‘soundtrack’ with audio footage of what a medieval town could have sounded like and perhaps the odd lute as background music.
