While a lot of gamers don’t pay any mind to the all the weird things they do whilst playing through their gaming catalogue, it’s actually a pretty educational experience when you get right down to it. Whether you’re learning the ropes in your latest RPG—what the heck is this skill tree doing here?—or you’re just starting out in your MOBA of choice, education is organic to gamers. We’re learning a lot, and we don’t even notice it.
Lucky for us, one team has. Gainesville-based start-up Immersed Games loves learning — a lot. So much so that their first contribution to the gaming industry comes in the form of an education-based MMORPG. “But Emily,” you grunt. “You just told us all games are educational.” Not like this, they’re not.
