The Challenge

Students often complain that history is boring. Not when you bring it back to life! The features of a good game are the same as those of a good lesson: Focused and structured goals, well-defined rules, and providing challenging and clear tasks that enable participants to try new things without adverse consequences.

Our Approach

Game-based learning is a key component of making education smarter. PlayGen’s solutions in education are about providing rich, rewarding, and relevant environments in which players can use their own theories to solve problems.

What we did

The ancient Egyptians believed that mummifying a person’s body after death was essential to ensure a safe passage to the afterlife. Over many centuries, they developed a method of preserving bodies so they would remain lifelike. The process included embalming the bodies and wrapping them in strips of linen. Today we call this process mummification.

Within this simulation, you will help the priest prepare the late Pharaoh for the afterlife.
