Social Innovation – A Serious game development

Social Innovation – A Serious game development
3 April 2018 John Moore

The COOP-IN serious game development is now well into its development phase and promises to provide an inspiring and educational experience. The COOP-IN game will introduce concepts, knowledge and skills related to social innovation.

Social Innovation City

The game’s landing page is based on a city containing a range of different types of businesses, organisations and institutions such as a university, a youth centre, a community shop and even a Mayor’s office.

When logged into the game, players – or rather learners – are given a series of missions. Each mission will take them around the city visiting different buildings and completing different challenges and mini games. They will meet someone from each building such as Mr. Sam Sung from the University’s Business Incubator Centre.

By completing each mission which includes several mini game activities, players will be rewarded with badges and ‘super-powers’. The game is aimed at helping enterprises to engage in and benefit from implementing social innovation initiatives.

Currently, the game which is still to be given its official name is in the final stages of development. In the New Year, it will be translated into Portuguese, Hungarian, Spanish and Greek ready for the game’s launch by Easter.

If you are interested in finding out more about this social innovation and the COOP-IN project, then simply contact your National Partner by clicking on the name of your country: Portugal, Hungary, Cyprus, Ireland, Spain, or the United Kingdom (SFEDI and ETA).
