Mooving Cows

If you work in agriculture and your job involves interacting with cows, proper cattle handling is essential for maintaining animal welfare and optimizing milk production. Mooving Cows is a 3D isometric mobile game we designed with UW-Madison to train adults in best practices when working with cattle. Developed for mobile platforms, Mooving Cows immerses players in the role of a cow mover working across various scenarios on a dairy farm. Through hands-on simulation, players learn how to effectively guide and manage cattle while minimizing stress and maintaining optimal milk yield.

This game provides a safe, controlled space for players to practice their cattle handling skills. As they navigate different challenges, players must regulate their own frustration levels and make thoughtful decisions about how to interact with the cows. By presenting complex agricultural concepts in an accessible, interactive format, Mooving Cows empowers dairy professionals to refine their techniques and develop a deeper understanding of best practices in cattle management. It’s a powerful example of how game-based learning can drive real-world skill development in specialized industries!

Leading Professional Learning

Leading Professional Learning, a simulation game we developed in collaboration with WestEd, equips leaders with the skills and knowledge needed to plan and implement impactful professional learning opportunities for educators. Originally a physical learning experience, Leading Professional Learning has been transformed into an engaging digital board game. The game draws upon research- and practice-based concepts from the book Designing Professional Development for Teachers of Science and Mathematics, providing leaders with a hands-on, experiential learning environment.

Through this game, players encounter challenges and make decisions that mirror the complexities of leading professional learning in school settings. This helps leaders develop a clear vision for effective professional development and acquire new skills to support sustained, meaningful change in educational practices.


In today’s workplace, fostering a culture of inclusion and equity is more than just a goal – it’s a necessity. EquipT, an interactive training game, takes a fresh approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) education by immersing players in a rich, narrative-driven experience. Set in a relatable workplace environment, EquipT invites players to step into the shoes of five distinct coworkers, each with their own complex identities and perspectives.

By presenting DEI topics through the lens of multidimensional characters, this game encourages players to develop empathy, understanding, and a deeper appreciation for the wide array of lived experiences within their own workplaces. Players complete chapters from each character’s viewpoint and they gain invaluable insights into the complexities of creating a truly inclusive work environment. The narrative-driven gameplay goes beyond surface-level discussions, empowering learners to grapple with authentic, relatable DEI challenges and envision practical solutions for transforming their workplace culture.

Saving Lives!

Saving Lives!, a mobile learning game designed for medical professionals, offers a cutting-edge approach to mastering the essential skills of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and basic life support. Developed in accordance with the latest American Heart Association Guidelines, Saving Lives! immerses players in a realistic emergency scenario where they must administer CPR to an unresponsive patient.

Players must maintain the proper chest compression rate and rhythm while following the correct procedure for CPR. The game provides real-time, contextual feedback based on the player’s performance, helping them to internalize best practices and adapt to changes in the patient’s status. Beyond CPR, Saving Lives! also offers players the opportunity to gain hands-on experience using an automated external defibrillator (AED) to resuscitate patients. By integrating AED training into the simulation, the game ensures that healthcare professionals are well-prepared to handle these types of emergencies.

MSI Retail Sim

Step into the shoes of a retail professional and experience the challenges and triumphs of delivering exceptional customer service with MSI Retail Sim. This innovative training game is designed to equip entry-level retail workers with the skills they need to navigate their job with confidence. As players progress through the game, they encounter a diverse array of retail situations that require quick thinking, problem-solving, and a keen understanding of customer needs. From handling tricky customer complaints to upselling products with finesse, MSI Retail Sim challenges players to find the perfect balance between customer satisfaction and store profitability.

What sets this game apart is its emphasis on the nuances of customer service. The game goes beyond simple right-or-wrong answers, encouraging players to consider the long-term implications of their choices. Will a quick fix satisfy a customer in the moment, or is a more thoughtful approach needed to build lasting loyalty?

Demonstrating Respect Game

In the healthcare industry, the ability to understand and connect with patients is just as crucial as medical expertise. Demonstrating Respect Game focuses on teaching healthcare professionals how to build meaningful relationships with older adults through empathy and effective communication. This unique game combines elements of narrative storytelling and interactive simulation to create a powerful learning experience. Players step into the role of a caregiver, engaging with a diverse cast of clients, each with their own unique backgrounds, personalities, and needs.

The key to success lies in active listening and understanding each client’s perspective. Players must make thoughtful decisions that balance the client’s needs with their own professional responsibilities, all while striving to build trust and maintain a positive reputation within the healthcare facility. Demonstrating Respect Game encourages a deeper understanding of the challenges and joys of working with older adults, and it highlights the importance of empathy, patience, and adaptability in building successful caregiving relationships.

These six professional training games showcase the incredible potential of game-based learning to uniquely aid skill development across industries. From healthcare to education, retail to agriculture, these games demonstrate the versatility and effectiveness of game-based learning to build real-world skills!
