As I talked about in a previous post, last term I took a class at CMU called Design of Educational Games by Vincent Aleven. For my final project, I worked with two other classmates, Martina Pavelko and Yujun Song, to create an educational game for med students studying for exams.
The game, called Antibiotic Apprentice, is an adventure RPG where the main character uses Items (antibiotics) to fight Enemies (bacterial infections). For an overview of the game, watch the video above. To learn more about our process for making the game, and evaluations, check out our final presentation. Finally, if you really want to get into detail, you can read our final report.
