Abstract

This report details the developmental process of Chinmoku (“silence”), an educational game developed to fulfill the Major Qualifying Project requirement for Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Interactive Media and Game Development (IMGD) and Computer Science majors. This project was developed over a three month period at Ritsumeikan University’s Biwako-Kusatsu Campus in Shiga Prefecture, Japan. The game seeks to teach Hiragana, one of the Japanese writing systems, to a target audience of young adults familiar with gaming. This report covers all aspects of the team’s development process, research, playtesting, and the possibilities of future work on this project.
