Prison Break – one of the first Educational MMOs?

Prison break is designed to be an educational MMO with a dark method of teaching. First of all, its not an educational game about breaking out of prisons despite its name. The education is actually a collection of many many things.

The game starts off with your character in the lower security zone, you learn little things along the way, and begin a political exercise with the other inmate and guards. Eventually you work your way around, but are never able to escape out the front door.

Much like prince of Persia, the environment is the puzzle. You will have to work together with other inmates to get through the game. Unlike a real prison mind you, as you progress through the game, you gradually progress into higher secretly zones.

Also unlike an MMO, there is no real level systems, its all a matter of getting people to work together and learn how to best the puzzles. As time goes on, more puzzles appear in the game, everything from the rubix cube to math problems.

By talking to NPC’s you can pick up on things, everything from simple addition, to more complex formulas, even begin to learn a second, third or even forth language. Everything that can be taught via a computer system will attempt to be in a fun and exciting way as you try to make it further into the prison.

Originally there was supposed to be combat, which there still may be, but as of right now that is removed. The journal keeps track of everything that you learn so that you don’t need to write down things, but does allow the player to create their own journal entries.

The game is also designed in time zone fashion, in other words each time zone has their own set of servers. (even ones where hardly anyone lives) This is to allow you to log into any time zone whenever you want so that you can complete objectives that are needed to be done at certain times. The use of language primers and such are intended to allow players to communicate using romajii language, using English letters in a verbal pronunciation of words.
