THE AIM: Players build a virtual world, complete quests, create a home and interact with friends in the game. Budding writers can even submit their creative works for other users to comment on.
KIDS WILL LEARN… History, literature, geography, music and other subjects come to life as players go on quests with historical figures like Galileo, Shakespeare and Mozart. The website says that many of the games require strong use of logic and thus help to enhance foresight.
