VWBPE immersive events,
The Queen’s Heroes in the Five Kingdoms
An illustrative educational game is offered at the VWBPE exposition site. The game shows how the standard hero quest model can be used as the basis for an instructional game. #vwbpe19chat
Starting point of the
Queen's Heroes gameLeticia De Leon (SL: Letty Luckstone), University of Texas Rio Grande Valley
Participants in this immersive experience will engage in an allegorical experience that is both storytelling and game. This underwater paradise needs heroes that will save the five kingdoms from a man-made destruction. Guided by a HUD and a mentor, all heroes who heed the call will travel to the five underwater kingdoms to piece together the story and undergirding real life issues. Those who engage with this experience may do so in storytelling or game mode.
Participants will be the heroes in an allegory that follows an underwater path to the five kingdoms.
Participants will evaluate environmental issues in a five-kingdom challenge to win the game.
