The American Guide Game

Development of a web-based game that would teach players about the Federal Writers' Project and America during the Great Depression.

THE AMERICAN GUIDE GAME, a web based, role playing game for youth ages 14-16, is a keystone of "Soul of a People, Soul of a Place," using games, social media and HTM15 enhanced video for players to A. understand first-hand the experiences and challenges of writers and editors as they collected the stories of people and places for the Federal Writers' Project, part of Roosevelt's 1930s New Deal initiatives, and B. share knowledge and skills gained in a historical, scaffolding game by documenting in game assignments and completing similar assignments in their own communities. We seek 50,000 dollars in Level II Start Up funding to move this unique game from advanced concept to completed prototype, ready to test pilot and disseminate.
