From Stories to Games
Tarinat peliin (From Stories to Games) is a development project which aims at bringing museum professionals and game industry professionals together and creating games based on real stories.
Objective of the project is to open museums’ cultural heritage content for versatile use in the gaming industry in order to develop story-based digital game applications. This will be achieved by increasing the dialogue between museum and game industry professionals and by providing training (both online and classroom teaching). In the process gaming industry experts’ knowledge and interest in the use of the rich cultural heritage will increase and museum participants acquire knowledge and skills related to characteristics of the game-museum environments.
The project is executed by The Finnish Museums Association and Kajaani University of Applied Sciences. The project began on May 2017 and will last until December 2018.
