Out of this Planet

Out of this planet is an adventure game created to teach children ages 6-11 about earth and space, using information from the governments national curriculum. The player crash lands on an alien planet and must try to get back home. Along their journey of obstacles and tasks, players learn facts and information about Earth and Space. Players must collect resources, traverse obstacles and complete mini games to reach a spaceship that will take them home. This project was created using Unity 3D. The use of interactive teaching methods are widespread practice in primary schools, as the positive effects of them have been recognised by teachers and parents. Despite this, the use of actual games in classrooms still receives mixed opinions. This project aims to create a game that can be used to teach children about a specific topic, using intrinsic motivation to encourage further learning outside of classrooms.
