DreamLight Transforms Educational Multimedia into an Award-winning Adventure of Discovery, where Learning is Fun and Exciting

McGraw-Hill’s Thomson Learning Tools approached us to create a new keyboarding instructional CD-ROM to tap into the entertainment oriented consumer market. This presented us with a unique opportunity. We created a product that merged the traditionally mundane educational multimedia with a 3D virtual adventure game, a product that fuses the best of both worlds into a grand adventure of discovery. Strap yourself in as we transport you deep into Cyberspace. By mastering the keyboard with some help from a little alien named Digit, you just might find your way back home.

Witness Digit come to life from rough sketches to 3D interactive animation. Learn as we build a virtual CyberCruiser and imbue it with intelligence in the form of a computer named C4. Observe as we synthesize and explore 3D virtual worlds. Watch us shatter the traditional role of educational multimedia with the award-winning KeyQuest: A Typing Adventure.

We hope you enjoy this peek behind the scenes of our KeyQuest CD-ROM project. Subscribe to the DreamLight Electronic Mailing List to be notified of additional issues of DreamLight Insights--behind the scenes explorations of interactive multimedia, 3D graphics and digital design.
