Eduardo talked about how worldbuilding and roleplaying can effect learning in this article in the last issue of Ludogogy. In this issue, we are delighted to have the opportunity to talk to him about his upcoming game, Liber Domus.
An ‘Open World’ Educational game, Liber Domus is currently focused on Grade 6 Mathematics, and is geared to the Portuguese curriculum. However there are plans, not only to cover other subjects and grades throughout K12 – but to regionalise for other countries too.
Educators who are interested in collaborating with Eduardo on these developments, will receive access to the game for their classrooms, and should contact him using the details below.
Eduardo Nunes is an educational games designer and game-based learning researcher with the Polytechnic Institute of Porto. He focuses on developing complex game systems through worldbuilding and other RPG elements. He also leads a research project to bring the first C-MORG to the classroom and the autonomous learning experience for K12 students and developing a game studio alongside teachers and developers.
