Mission America: The Road to Revolution (working title) is an adventure game (the first in a proposed series of ten) that immerses middle school-aged students and game players in historical events and personalities in colonial Boston during the years leading up to the American Revolution. The game is one seven prototype projects funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s $20 million the American History and Civics Initiative, which seeks to develop multi-platform interactives that will engage youth in deepening their knowledge of history and civics. Prototypes represent the first phase of the Initiative. At the end of this phase, several prototypes will be selected for full-fledged development with a launch goal of 2009.
