Mission: Cold War
A educational game about the cold war end the fear of nuclear annihilation.
The school services hired Odyssé to partake in the development of a Cold War-themed game for grades 7-9. The game had to be tailor-made to a newly built museum and digital elements of the exhibition had to be incorporated.
We developed a game focusing on the insecurity and fear of “the other side” launching a nuclear war. Through negotiations and gathering of intelligence, the pupils learned about the different sides in the war and, more specifically, the Cuban crisis and its outcome. They left the game with an emotional understanding of what life during the Cold War was like. A time before they were even born.
