|Overview:||Using games for educational purposes have a long tradition, as learning through play is how we all grew up. And serious games have gone beyond the stereotype of focusing on being solely educational. Still, creating a game that is both fun to play and cleverly educates is a challenging subject. Within the story world of our game "Call Her Lotte", based around Holocaust remembrance, we needed to think outside of the box to be able to create an engaging game that connects with a young audience today. This session will explain how we approached the game design and connected the game with an award-winning 3D film using latest game technology.|
