Abstract

This project studies the presentation of history through the medium of video gaming. We studied specific topic areas such as educational software, simulation software, and narrative analysis, then applied this to the evaluation of several history games. To conclude, a historical game was developed that attempted to fit the criteria we developed, with an eye towards publication in conjunction with the Higgins Armory Museum.
