Bugtopia (Point&Click-Adventure)

Description

The online portal Studiport (www.studiport.de) presents the in-house developed educational game "Bugtopia" (Point&Click-Adventure), which combines an entertaining story with puzzles on topics from the subject area "Speech and Text Comprehension".

The serious game, set in an uncertain future, presents you with an unusual setting:

  • It begins with the unintended arrival of the alien X-18 in a university on Earth, where highly evolved insects study, teach and work.
  • The whole inventory of the school consists of recycled products and occasionally very mysterious objects.
  • The inhabitants of the college do not make it easy for X-18 to gain a foothold in this world. Nevertheless, it is possible for the creature to find its way through the university if resourceful users help it. Among other things, they are faced with the task of helping the caretaker argue, dancing commas and feeding a drama bot.
