Moon Bloom - The Legend of the Bloom of the Aligned Moons
By Austin Tate, for Introduction to digital game-based learning, 2012
“Moon Bloom” is a game design intended to provide a situated and community orientated learning experience in an engaging and immersive environment. It continues my exploration of ways to support mixed-initiative scenario-based training. Moon Bloom provides a strong background story, clear objectives, involvement with interesting artifacts and interactions, levels which force learners into questioning and changing their approaches, use of encyclopaedias and field guides, identification and classification, demonstration of the value of community knowledge, and social engagement.
