Squiggle Park, which makes a well-respected literacy game for early learners, is introducing an online multiplayer literacy game for grades 3-6 called Dreamscape. The game involves building things, collecting items, exploring, and problem solving. Squiggle Park is inviting participation in a free pilot program from October to December 2018. Applications are accepted here until October 8. There must be at least three teachers participating in the school and administrative buy-in is requested.
Dreamscape combines the strategy and engagement of popular base-building games with imaginative reading passages and interactive questions to create a fun literacy game.
Players of Dreamscape are dropped into the realm of dreams and are tasked with defending their “dwell” (the place where their own dreams live and are created) from invading “reveries” (dream creatures). In order to collect resources and build new structures to defend their dwell, students must read passages and answer comprehension questions. The goal of the game is to build your dwell to higher and higher levels, create new reveries of your own, and collect shards to climb up the leaderboard and face-off against other players.
