Antarctic Simulator 1914
Heroes Of The Antarctic
AN EDUCATIONAL GAME
For Boffins and Gamers Alike
Heroes in the Classroom
Antarctic Simulator 1914: Heroes of the Antarctic is a fast paced game and can easily be enjoyed during a single class period. A single session can be finished in 20-40 minutes of real time. Sooner if you make terrible choices and kill your crew.
The most common lesson durations in grade school seem to be 28, 38, 55, and 80 minutes - all times are long enough for students to play while supplementing their gameplay with contextual information from their teachers.
The game does not penalize the player for failing to reach the South Pole, instead it emphasizes decision making under difficult circumstances.
History acknowledges both men as courageous leaders, and Antarctic Simulator 1914: Heroes of the Antarctic will judge the player in the same way. Do you want to be bold and risk your crew's lives for the prize, or protect them but have to try again with a different strategy?
