Building and repairing friendships are heavy topics to help a learner explore. But it’s amazing how a story and game mechanics can take a complex subject and make it more approachable. 

In this example, you’re on a journey with a creature named Mori to help her find something important she’s lost—but first, you’re going to need to earn her trust. Through making thoughtful choices in your discussions, you can gain points and get Mori to open up to you. And as you progress in your quest, she shares more clues about what went missing and why.

Freeform quiz question slides in Storyline 360 make it easy to simulate a conversation and provide custom reactions to learner’s responses. And by adding in number variables, you can give learners points to mark their progress and unlock new content in the story.

Once I looked closer, I saw that it was a journey: Mori’s Journey (which intrigued me). Who doesn’t like a quest? It reminded me of a Renaissance festival or Robinhood.
