PROJECT

Erasmus Program Project

PROBLEM

How to create a real-world environment for serious gaming learning?

IDEA

Use a real 3D office with real-world items and prompts.

DEVELOPMENT TIME

Development 120 Hours
Design 80 Hours
Project Management 20 Hours
Marketing Research 20 Hours

Between 12th and 22th of March, 2012 a team of five nationalities got togheter in Amsterdam, Netherlands, to handle a game proposal for the Deltares company.

Deltares have a learning software called Water Coach to train their employees in dealing with weather conditions in the Netherlands. The game had to be as real as possible, since they need to learn how to work under stressful situations. We took this concept further and developed a 3D game, the Control Room, in which you must deal with many different factors and you have the possibility to decide many different courses of action. 

The project was part of the Erasmus Programme, with participating universities from Ireland, Netherlands, Austria and Norway.
