Just 90 days ago a few friends were sitting around a table talking about how awesome it would be if there were a way to create a kit that would transform any room into an immersive learning game, one that required teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, and could be aligned all content areas. Today Breakout EDU is a full-blown project with game developers around the country testing, tinkering, and experimenting. We can’t wait to see what the next few months will bring. Thanks for joining us on this journey.
If you haven’t signed up to be a Beta tester yet and acquired your kit, do so today! By being among the first to believe in the project we promise to reward you with early access to new games and features!
1. Game Store Open: We’ve opened our game store and posted the first game, “Dr. Johnson” with more games scheduled in the coming weeks. All games are password protected during the Beta period.
2. Custom Kits: I’ll be heading down to Fresno to build our first wood Breakout Kits in Mark Hammons’ workshop. I’ll share videos and photos here next week. All kits are handbuilt by members of the team. We’re buying high-quality materials to make sure they’re worthy of a spot on your bookshelf!
3. Google Cardboard: We are working with Google Cardboard to design awesome games that are compatible with the their low-cost virtual reality platform. We are excited about blending the physical and virtual worlds! You’re going to love them! The first game, “Passport Lost,” comes out on June 19th!
We know Breakout EDU is special and we plan to chase this journey as far as it will go. Here's to creating something awesome!
