Announcing the launch of Where's Indy in the Middle East, an AI-powered VR escape room
Knowledge Avatars announces the launch of Where's Indy in the Middle East, an AI-powered escape room educational experience in virtual reality.
"Where's Indy in the Middle East?" is the first in a series of virtual reality educational escape rooms.
This revolutionary role-playing game pits students against the villainous S-Quad as they search for Indiana Royster, journalist and truth-sleuth extraordinaire. Each escape room is a 3D experience in virtual reality. Rooms are thematically organized around a big-picture question. For example, players in the Map Maze search for geographic advantages in the Middle East to unlock the escape portal to the next room.
The Gamemaster is a Bot
The gamemaster, an AI-powered Knowledge Avatar, trains students to develop pointed questions as they hunt for clues.
What will students learn?
More than a game, Where's Indy in the Middle East develops 21st Century social, emotional, and higher-order thinking skills. Players build resilience as they persist through challenges and failures in pursuit of a larger goal.
As they move from room to room, players unwittingly teach themselves problem-solving strategies. To persist through complex challenges, Where's Indy in the Middle East sleuths must collaborate with other players and try different approaches.
