5 students are dropping out of school. It’s up to you to determine what happens and what they chose to learn about the experience.
Created by Ken Eklund (Writerguy), and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Ed Zed Omega (EZΩ) aims to create an alternate reality game (ARG) for all audiences. Through a mixture of Facebook, text messages, voicemail and other “transmedia” tools, the story of EZΩ will unfold in real time based on player input. Players and in game characters will collaborate and discuss the education system in the 21st century, with the hope of reexamining what “education” means. In the end, players and the game’s characters have the potential of recreating what education will look like in the future.
