Inspiration πŸ€”

Nowadays, as the world experiences the effects of Covid-19, the way children live has changed drastically. As the possibility to spend time learning and exploring the outdoor world has become dangerous for our health, we are stuck inside, trying to compensate for it with methods that may not always be working.
I wanted to create an app that made it possible for kids to:

  • explore the beautiful inside world 🌳
  • learn important skills by playing educational games πŸ”’
  • play safely inside at the same time πŸ•Ή

What it does πŸ“

Adventures in the world of ZA is a Voiceflow graphic-novel style application. It aims to engage kids via interesting stories to play and learn at the same time.

Plot πŸ“š

The main character begins an adventure with captain Tuv and his crew. Depending on the location chosen by the player, the challenges in each route are of different difficulty levels and aimed at various age groups. Missions Currently, the game has 3 different locations the player can choose from:

  • Zapolis - a technologically advanced city with streets full of mystery πŸ™
  • The Island of Za - legend has it there is a treasure hidden there 🏝
  • Nameless village - a quiet little village usually, but recently there have been rumours that something magical has awakened ✨

How we built it ✍

The game was built with Voiceflow and can be integrated within other educational apps via the Voiceflow API.

Challenges we ran into πŸ‘ˆ

I tried to come up with an engaging story, which certainly was not easy in such a limited amount of time. Also making the video capture the overall feeling of excitement and the spirit of the game was not easy, but I believe at the end it turned out well. πŸ“½

Accomplishments that we're proud of 🌟

I am proud to have completed the first few levels of the game in such a limited time.πŸ₯³
I also believe the plot came out well and will be interesting and captivating for the readers.🀩

What we learned πŸ¦Έβ€β™€οΈ

It was my first time working with Voiceflow, so I had to learn how the interface worked and how to link events in the most effective way.
I also had to research how to write✍ an engaging story, aimed at a younger audience, so I can make the experience as captivating as possible.

What's next for The world of ZA ⭐

I am planning on adding more stories in the near future, focusing on different school subjects and featuring challenges for children in different grades.
I am also working on creating a full mobile app, focusing on learning via storytelling in the style of The World of ZA.
