  • Public Service Explorer

    As a recognised serious games studio, the Centre for Public Service Innovation approached our team to develop the Public Service Explorer for the multi-touch wall platform. The educational game takes players through various steps of dealing with public service institutions, such as the Department of Home Affairs, or South African Revenue Service, to perform tasks like applying for their first Identity Document, registering the birth of a child, applying for government grants or registering for tax.

    Using a simple, self-explanatory illustrated touch display, players visits 4 different public service institutions in small sections of a virtual city, interacting with virtual public servants and completing various tasks, such as attaining documents, or registering for benefits or services.
    This step-by-step process effectively educates players on the processes required when making use of public services, helping them cope better when confronted with the same issues in real life.

    The game also features a virtual flowchart tool, which helps players visualise the tasks they need to complete in order to fulfil their objectives. Using simple tools, like pens, highlighters and drag-and-drop arrows, players can keep track of their progress and plan the next step.
