Serious Games

 

Serious Games are a step beyond gamified eLearning. They are a unique approach to training that equip learners to make choices and solve problems in order to achieve a goal. Rather than simply being taught best practices, learners get to attempt different approaches and discover the consequences of choosing one route over another.

Designing Digitally, Inc. developers love applying tactics and complexity from mainstream video games to instructional Serious Games. We use game mechanics such as limited turns, finite resources, and merit-based progression to create engaging experiences that capture learners’ attention. As a result, learners focus fully on the strategy of the Serious Game, rather than multitasking while clicking through stale online training. Learners display far greater comprehension and exhibit positive changes in behavior.

Our 2D and 3D Art Designers create enticing settings for learners to explore. Serious Games may be set in a realistic environment, such as a hectic retail store where the learner must serve each customer. Or, they may be based on fictional scenarios, such as defending a spaceship against alien attacks, to provide learners with an escape from their daily routines.

Serious Games also motivate learners with the inherent aspect of competition. Scores, leaderboards, and rankings encourage colleagues to invest in the Serious Game to beat records and boast in their success. The outcome is learners who are thoroughly trained, and in turn, are more efficient and effective in the workplace.

Designing Digitally, Inc. develops Serious Games for a platform that fits your organization’s needs. We can output them as SCORM packages or xAPI for your LMS, websites accessed in a browser, executable files for Windows, or custom applications for iOS.

Instructional Design for Serious Games

Our talented instructional designers are gamers at heart, and educators by profession. Alongside the help of our gamification specialists, and other game experts within our organization, the instructional designers are there to help create a balance of fun while learning. For over a decade our team has created sound instructional content material while molding it within a metric we call fun. Within the process the team will provide concept ideas for both intrinsic and extrinsic rewards while pairing the content with strong game mechanics to make the content stick with the learners long after they have played the serious game. By creating comprehensive learning plans and storyboards that work within the theme, and the game mechanics brainstormed, the team develops fun and effective custom learning games.
