Wonderville MMOG Prototype

Overview

Wonderville.ca was intended to become a potential venue for Science Alberta Foundation (SAF), to publish and host a STEM learning based Massive Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) for children of 6-12 years of age. Using Smarfox Server technology, Zensoft Studios developed a limited scope MMOG prototype as a pitch to this potential project. It was required that current market core elements of an MMOG be included in the design, with questing, character development, world navigation, and social interaction. The quests were developed from source materials provided by the Science in a Create Program.

Challenges

Develop and deliver a limited scope MMOG prototype in a 2 month time line with no prior experience using Smartfox Technology.
Integrate and modify a classroom based Science in a Crate activity for use in a virtual environment.
Develop a creative direction targeted towards current generation children of 6-12 years of age.
