A little about our games and us – We were originally funded as a Small Business Innovation Research project under the USDA rural and economic development initiative. Thanks to generous sponsors, we are able to offer our games at no cost to Title I schools and after school programs serving Title I students.
We have two games available now.
Spirit Lake: The Game – An introduction to the series in which players explore the virtual world, find medicine to save their tribe, escape from rabid wolves and go on a buffalo hunt. Mathematics focus on multiplication and division, with a bit of geometry and probability. People who played Spirit Lake: The Game for just eight weeks saw their math scores improve 300 percent!
Fish Lake – tackles fractions while you migrate with your family across the Great Plains (based on the migration of the Ojibwe people to “the land where food grows on the water”). This game is full of side quests, Easter eggs and (of course) real-life math. This expansion of our virtual world includes activities suggested by our beta testers on the Spirit Lake Dakota Nation and the Turtle Mountain Reservation. “I’d like to be able to row a boat in that lake.” “You should have deer hunting.” Here you go!
