Tikkun is an adventure game aimed to expose children between the ages of 6-10 to Jewish universal values drawn from the Jewish source and culture, while immersing them in a fantastic world, inspired and filled with Jewish motifs and symbols.
The game follows the adventures of a young child, designed by the player, on the way to school. Our player meets a white donkey struggling with heavy packages. The donkey, asks the player to help him and sends the player through a portal to a magical journey. Our player needs to solve riddles in different worlds, each nested in a setting inspired by Jewish history or sources. Each world represents a different set of values: Social justice, optimism, environmentalism, learning etc. Each world is filled with hidden motifs and symbols drawn from Jewish culture, from cultural heroes to legends and myth.
While the player feels as if he just plays a game, the teacher and the parent, can use the gameplay in-order to introduce the child to the rich heritage and culture of Judaism. The game is accompanied by a teacher/parent educational handbook, that helps teach groups and individual children about the game's content.
