Sharkworld - A project management game

  Shared By: RanjSeriousGames      Date: Feb 06      Category: Project Management     
Sharkworld is an intense experience of the exciting daily activities of an international project manager. The game allows aspiring project managers to experiment with project management in a setting where game and the real world are flawlessly intertwined. The game is played via both the online and mobile channels. Projects develop in (accelerated) real-time (24/7) so players have to keep up with a fast pace and act and intervene immediately. Additionally Sharkworld is propelled by an underlying suspense story. The story is set in Shanghai, where a high-tech large scale shark aquarium is being built on an Olympic location. A Dutch installation company got the job but their last project manager on site has mysteriously disappeared. The Sharkworld player has to take his place. To successfully finish the project he needs to cooperate with for example the Chinese customer, the Chinese authorities and the workers on site. The game interacts with players in many different ways: through websites (both fictional and real), cut scenes, e-mail, newspaper articles, chat, voice-mails and text messages (on the players own telephone). Sharkworld covers not only economic aspects of project management like planning and budgeting, but also social aspects, such as conflict management, cultural sensitivity and diplomatic skills. Sharkworld won the European innovation award 2008 "Most innovative Software"
