Our mission is to create exciting and effective learning experiences that hit the sweet spot where learning theory, digital technology, and fun meet.

Description One family. Five generations. Countless ways to build a city. Starting as French immigrants in 1750, players try to make a living as farmers in the feudal economy of New France. Subsequent levels span 150 years of Detroit history as the city grows into a major industrial center. In each level, players take on the role of one of their children from the previous level, deciding who to marry, how to raise their children, and what job to do, based on the career choices of that time period. Every decision has consequences, giving players a lasting memory of what it might have been like to have lived in the historic times that shaped Detroit.
