Le jeu étant en version alpha (première version jouable), les enfants ont été confronté à la découverte du métier de testeur de jeux vidéo, un métier à part entière qui consiste à déceler tous les bugs d’un jeu vidéo.

Create Games with melonJS HTML5 Game Engine Create Games with melonJS HTML5 Game Engine melonJS is the result of our enthusiasm and past experiments with Javascript, and came from the feeling that no simple, free and standalone library was available to develop games. And although still a big work in progress and not yet bug free, melonJS already allows to easily create some nice games. melonJS integrates the popular Tiled map format, allowing to easily design levels using the Tiled map editor, and to focus on the game features itself. melonJS is compatible with the various existing browsers.

The University of Central Florida was awarded a $434,800 National Institutes of Health grant that will allow researchers there to develop a game using life-size avatars and real-life scenarios to promote sexual abstinence among Latina middle schoolers. Anne Norris, a UCF nursing professor, and Charles Hughes, a UCF computer science professor, will work together with UCF’s Institute for Simulation & Training during the next two years on the project. The game is intended to be played in after-school and youth outreach programs run by trained teachers and counselors. It will be designed to improve girls’ skills in responding to peer pressure to engage in sexual behavior. Gets $434k NIH Grant | UCF Today Gets $434k NIH Grant | UCF Today
Are Video Games Educational? Are Video Games Educational? Video games. While they may seem like the bane of every parent's existence, they don't have to be—many of them offer unique learning features. And with increased requirements in schools placing unprecedented demands on children and parents, it may be time to start thinking about video games as teaching tools. The learning component of gaming can be optimized with parent involvement. That means understanding what makes a game both fun and educational.
Game Theory loading About the Course Popularized by movies such as "A Beautiful Mind", game theory is the mathematical modeling of strategic interaction among rational (and irrational) agents. Beyond what we call 'games' in common language, such as chess, poker, soccer, etc., it includes the modeling of conflict among nations, political campaigns, competition among firms, and trading behavior in markets such as the NYSE.

Videojuego enseñará a las niñas a decir "no" a relaciones sexuales tempranas Científicos de la Universidad del Centro de Florida (UFC) están dedicados a diseñar un videojuego para enseñar a las niñas a decir "no" a las relaciones sexuales precoces. "Este es un juego de computadoras como ningún otro y que no se asemeja a ninguno de los existentes actualmente en el mercado", afirmó Anne Norris, profesora de enfermería, quien trabaja en este proyecto junto a Charles Hughes, profesor de ciencias de la computación de UFC en Orlando. El juego de video, que se encuentra en su fase de prueba de diseño, utilizará avatares o personajes virtuales que interactuarán con las niñas en escenarios que simularán situaciones reales y comunes entre estudiantes de la escuela intermedia, como el salón de clases, el gimnasio o la cafetería escolar. "Estamos trabajando con varios adolescentes, estudiantes de escuelas superiores del condado Orange, quienes están muy al tanto de cómo el juego funciona y han aportado sus ideas", dijo a Efe Norris.
