Transformational Games

Games aren’t just for entertainment anymore, games can also be transformational. According to Sabrina Culyba (2018), “Transformational Games are those games developed with the intention of changing players in a specific way that transfers and persists beyond the game.”

The Transformational Framework is based on the work of Schell Games, an independent game studio that specializes in bridging entertainment and education to create games and other experiences that are both engaging and enriching.
