How I Use It
Device 6 is an amazing experience that combines a written novel with images, video and sounds + puzzles. The puzzles in Device 6 are challenging and rewarding to solve. The story is very interesting. You play a woman who has woken up in a strange castle and can’t remember how she got there.The whole game takes about ten hours to finish. Device 6 is available on iOS for $4 dollars.
My Take
There are a number of games released in the past few years that have interesting narratives and might be great learning experiences. Doki-Doki Universe is one, Gone Home is another. The Stanley Parable has also been getting a lot of attention. Device 6 is a great way to get people to read a mystery novel, even those that don’t enjoy reading. The puzzles and the surreal aesthetics will engage players and encourage them to continue reading.
