This summer PIXELearning entered ‘Our Worlds of Makrini’ into the awards under the category of Best Professional Game with a budget over 40,000 Euros. We received second place in the competition narrowly beaten to the top spot by Serious Games Interactive’s ‘Playing History – The Plague’.
The 1st European Best Learning Game Competition sought to expand the understanding and capabilities of developing and using Serious Game applications for learning and training and to promote a debate of Serious Games as factor of regional development.
‘Our Worlds of Makrini’ is a very ambitious and innovative online serious game aimed at tackling issues around diversity and inclusion topics – it uses a sci-fi themed context to help staff make linkages between abstract diversity issues and real world, day to day business activities and objectives.
‘Our Worlds of Makrini’ has been well appreciated by the jury…Your outstanding technological and educative achievement has been promoted with a real success during the Serious Games, Education & Economic Development Conference 2010.” (Dan Baclesanu Ludus Project, 2010).
