WE'LL DESIGN AND BUILD A GAME TO YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS
We are keen to work with clients from all over the world and across all industries to create games that will help people learn through VR (Virtual Reality) with a sense of immersion for soft skills training and through AR (Augmented Reality) for technical and hard skills training. We hold consultations in-house and work closely with you to find the ‘sweet spot’ between psychology of learning, game mechanics and technological requirements. Our games are designed by industry experts with vast knowledge to be accessible, capable of providing a near-authentic experience as well as feedback all to further L&D. So whatever idea you have, we’re the ones that can make that vision a reality!
WHAT ARE 'VR' AND 'AR'?
Taking 3D games and simulations one step further, Virtual Reality creates a sense of immersion like no other, and with headsets improving constantly this technology is fast becoming impossible to ignore for its potential Learning and Development benefits.
With solutions that are compatible with mobile phones (e.g. using Google cardboard) the cost doesn’t have to be prohibitive either. Images below are from our demo treasure hunt mini-game available on Google Play for use with 'Cardboard'.
Consider using VR for any learning in which immersion in a particular environment is important. However, be aware that the technology (at time of writing) is still not quite at a stage that allows users to spend long periods of time in the headsets due to motion sickness - and communication can be limited, so it is better suited to single player experiences.
Augmented Reality can be used to great effect for technical and hard skills training. Imagine overlaying a car engine with digital instructions on how to check oil and water, or as per our welding sim, mixing in hardware so that the movements and actions that the learner performs in reality, are augmented in virtual reality on-screen, excellent for muscle memory development and feedback with significant cost-saving benefits.
BRANCHING SCENARIOS WITH ANIMATED AVATARS TO BRING CONTENT TO LIFE
For training on soft skills, compliance, systems or methodologies for example, role plays can work really well. In such games and simulations, the learner takes on a particular role such as an investigator in an equality and diversity dispute, or a project manager in charge of six sigma process improvement for a failing business. Often built in 2D (because the emphasis is on in-game interactions rather than moving around the environment), the games can include interactive maps to transport the players to different locations, animated avatars to converse with in branching conversations, a gamification layer (scoring, leaderboard etc) and difficulty progression amongst many other possibilities.
At Totem, we have been trusted to create role play games for many clients. Our 'serious games engine' and collection of environments and characters allows for rapid, cost effective development. So please get in touch with us now to discuss your training requirements and let us inspire you with some examples from our catalogue.
Consider Role Play games for:
Compliance such as diversity training
Induction and Onboarding
Any soft-skills training
USING THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY FOR THE RIGHT PURPOSE
Totem Learning have the capability and capacity in-house to create a suite of technology enhanced training to take your learners from newbie right through to master. We are technology agnostic. Our courses can be deployed to Desktop, Laptop, and Mobile devices. What matters most to us is your audience, their needs and your learning outcomes.
EXPERTS YOU CAN TRUST
With over a decade in the Serious Games industry, Team Totem are industry experts with a vast knowledge on the whole process of developing a serious game. From the early stages to the actual game development, we can help and advise you.
Totem Learning are often engaged to help develop an idea to a tangible point, such as a pitch video or prototype, so that our clients can gain further support or investment to make it happen. We often consult on design ideas and evaluate design concepts. Our in-depth knowledge of gamification techniques, entertainment game mechanics and real world deployments gives Team Totem the edge when it comes to ideation.
