### Learning Objectives

• In this virtual world one can acquire a great range of knowledge. In order to open a door in this world a certain mission has to be accomplished by the NPC. This way, one can provide the NPC with the desired task. In-game video tutorials support the player in completing the mission. In a way, the player is embedded within a kind of ‘learning circle’. Eventually, the player reaches a new island where they have to protect a foreigner from a dangerous creature.

### Guiding Ideas

The idea is for players to navigate playfully through a virtual world in order to gain knowledge as opposed to a conventional worksheet. The respective content may be changed easily in the NPC and, thus, any topic works. The prototype focusses on the theory of triangles. There are three closed doors and each one is guarded by a NPC whose question has to be answered in order to be granted access. In case the player needs help, they may click on the button ‘learn more’ and will be redirected to a video tutorial. Once they come up with the solution, they should then craft it on a paper and throw it into a funnel. This move will open the door and the player gains access to the objects inside. Solution for the situation:

House 1: 7 (paper Code)

House 2:  270 (paper Code)

House 3: 45°  (paper Code)

Once the player has completed every task, they reach a new island where they have to save another player from a tower. Warning: There is a wizard and other dangerous creatures! Task for the player: The player gains – with or without previous knowledge – new insights into the theory of triangles. In-game video tutorials support the player in completing the mission. The game may be played in both a single-player mode and a multi-player mode.

### Student Activities

The player gains – with or without previous knowledge – new insights into the theory of triangles. In-game video tutorials support the player in completing the mission. The game may be played in both a single-player mode and a multi-player mode

### Performance Expectations

The player knows the traits of triangles/can construct a triangle/knows the different categories of triangles.
