Lure of the Labyrinth
Client: Maryland Public Television
MIT Education Arcade and FableVision teamed up to create this innovative gaming-meets-storytelling approach to improve math and literacy among middle-school students.
FableVision and MIT created the engaging online game environment, marrying an immersive interface and compelling storyline with standards-based curriculum. An underground monster-inhabited world comes to life as students plunge into a shadowy factory on a mission to rescue their missing pet. Taking on a monster persona (avatar), students disguise themselves as "insiders" to maneuver through math problems.
