Free Know-how for Academics: The Descent of the Serpent


This week Google Arts and Tradition launched a brand new recreation for college students. The sport known as The Descent of the Serpent and it is out there to play in your internet browser or within the Google Arts and Tradition apps for Android and iOS. 

The Descent of the Serpent is a recreation by means of which college students can find out about civilizations of historical Mesoamerica. College students play the sport from the angle of certainly one of 4 characters consultant of mythological figures in Mesoamerican tradition. College students then navigate by means of 4 ranges of the sport in a quest to seek out and recuperate twenty misplaced objects and return them to Chichen Itza earlier than the photo voltaic equinox. 

The sport play of The Descent of the Serpent is slightly harking back to Legend of Zelda (sure, I understand that is a reference level that dates me as a late Gen-Xer). Gamers navigate by means of scenes whereas attempting to dodge obstacles and objects of their quest to seek out the lacking artifacts. When gamers discover an artifact they’re proven slightly little bit of details about its historical past and significance. 

The Descent of the Serpent could be performed in story mode or in problem mode. The story mode permits gamers to maintain taking part in no matter what number of instances they hit a dead-end or get hit by an object. The problem mode offers gamers simply 5 “lives” earlier than they lose the sport and have to begin over. 

Purposes for Training
I performed The Descent of the Serpent for about quarter-hour this morning then needed to power myself to cease as a result of I may have simply gone down a rabbit gap of taking part in it for for much longer (notice, I am not skillful when it comes taking part in video video games normally). I discovered the little pop-ups of knowledge after discovering every artifact attention-grabbing. That stated, I take a look at the sport as a enjoyable option to introduce college students to historical Mesoamerican historical past and never as a substitute for full classes.
