19 Figure 7: Multiple Player Mode. Here, two players can chat while playing the game to discuss strategy. They are looking for the safe that contains the letter. Source: +-+Secrets+of+Treasure+House.html the character, and extra mini games. Along the way, they will receive immediate feedback to encourage them and show if they are along the right track from NPC s. As the energy meter dwindles, it tells the player to take a break from playing. There will also be information on how much longer they have to complete the mission. Whenever a player beats their own personal score, their page will be updated and can have their friends congratulate them (explained in the social network section). As time goes on, the characters develop in strength and maturity. This can be seen by how healthy the character looks, their ability to easily perform certain actions and the complexity of the problems they face. Such changes will also be marked in the user's profile. Profile and personalising Each player can personalise the game and their profile (Fig 5). There will be information about their current level and progress report, time spent on each game, tokens they have collected, strength level and a chart of progress, tools they have collected and can share with others, the pieces of the letter, friends on their network, and game settings (sound, music, private vs public display of information) to accommodate different styles and needs. The player can also decide which information will always be displayed on the game screen, such as the score, energy meter, etc Examples of stations One example of a station is in the forest by the river. The player must build a bridge using the available tools to get to the other side of the river and pick up the piece of the letter. This game practices measuring using tools, arithmetic, and estimation skills. In higher levels, there will be NPC that add to the challenge, such as the overzealous goofy creature that follows you around and can accidentally push you in the river (Fig. 6). Another station is in the mansion of the richest family in the town. The player must circumvent all the strange creatures in the mansion and make their way to the mansion's study room. (Fig. 7). In the study, they player must find the safe where a piece of the letter is stored. The safe is locked with a Figure 8: Butterfly Room. Hungry creatures rising and threatening the ecosystem. The player must keep the butterflies alive. Source: combination lock. The player must figure out the code on the lock before the alarm sounds. This game practices recognising and completing number patterns. After three unsuccessful attempts, the player must restart at the front door of the mansion and make their way back to the safe. As the levels increase, the number patterns become more and more complex. A third station is in a townsman's backyard. The player enters the scene only to realise they have crashed a children's birthday party. The mother assumes they are the waiter(ess) and hands them a tray with 30 pieces of cake. The player has to hand out the cakes before the children cry, keeping in mind the tray must be balanced at all times. This game practices weight distribution, fractions, and estimation skills. A fourth station would take place in the Butterfly Room of the local zoo. The player must keep the temperature constant to make sure the butterflies flourish. If the room is too warm, some hungry bugs appear on the scene (Fig. 8) and begin eating the flowers that keep the butterflies alive. The player must restore the room back to order to make them disappear and grab the piece of letter. The skills required are reading a thermometer, equations with changing conditions while maintaining a constant (temperature). 9.2 Social network The social network will be a collection of resources, such as chat during and between game play, a social networking page, similar to Facebook where they will have a sortable friends list. Updates from the game, such as score records and awards for creativity will be linked to their page. Their friends can congratulate them to give an opportunity for all players to shine, not only the best players. It could even lead to a discussion of strategy and skill for others to get the same. There will also be a knowledge base/forum where players can post questions and discussions to all the members of the network (not just their direct friends). Any updates to their comments will also be sent to their page. During game play, multiple players can chat while playing (Fig 7). Otherwise, the player can click on the tabs on the side to switch to full chat mode or to view their page. From their settings, players can decide what information becomes public, and to personalise their page and friends list (Fig 5).
