Tesseract Center Wins International Award for Civil Rights History Game
The Tesseract Center for Immersive Environments and Game Design at the U of A won Silver in the Higher Education category for their entry in the 2021 International Serious Play Awards competition, which honors outstanding games used for training or education.
The competition is part of the annual Serious Play Conference, “a leadership conference for professionals who are exploring the use of game-based learning, sharing their experience and working together to shape the future of training and education.”
The Tesseract Center’s entry, Mornin’ In Your Eyes, is an interactive visual narrative that immerses players in key events of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement from 1963-64.
