We’ve been super busy at Game Learning, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Our third and newly released educational videogame designed to teach history, “The Gold Rush,” has definitely been a crowd-pleaser. But we’re never content to rest on our laurels. As an educational gaming development company, we’re always working on bringing even more history to life using 21st Century technology. So, we’re thrilled to announce that our next game will be released before the end of the year!
“The Adventures of Lewis & Clark” will be available next semester. In this fourth engaging, historical videogame, players will be transported back to the days of Thomas Jefferson’s presidency. As has been well documented, Jefferson was most curious about westward expansion, determined to find an overland route to the Pacific Ocean.
As history buffs know, Jefferson was of the belief that reaching the West Coast would have to be accomplished by crossing the Missouri River, which he hoped would link to the Columbia River. However, he needed boots-on-the-ground to see with their own two eyes, to confirm whether this junction existed. As such, he commissioned his personal secretary and former soldier Meriwether Lewis. Understandably, Lewis was none too keen on embarking on such a journey alone and requested a partner for the journey. His selection was a man he knew well, William Clark, who had previously been Lewis’s military commander.
The many obstacles facing Lewis and Clark will be up to players to overcome in Game Learning’s next videogame, “The Adventures of Lewis & Clark.”
While “The Adventures of Lewis & Clark” take players on a journey westward, Game Learning’s fourth educational videogame -available in early 2019-will bring players back to East Coast Colonial America. In “George Washington’s Spies”, Game Learning players will be transported to America in the 1770’s when British forces occupied New York City. History makes clear that the outcome of the Revolutionary War may have been very different were it not for patriot spies who shared valuable information with then American General George Washington.
