BBC’s Trench Warfare Game

Here you guys go, as promised. Let’s see how well you guys do – or how frustrated you get.

BBC Trench Warfare Game

Spend some time poking around their site – their resources on WWI (and everything else) are tremendous.

Another, more traditional game based around WWI is Valiant Hearts, which is a challenging puzzle based game with an incredibly heartrending story and lots of opportunity for historical investigation. It’s available on Google Play, the App Store, for PS4 and XBox One, and also on SteamIt’s not a new game but it is very, very well reviewed. I played it this summer, and when I wasn’t trying to figure out what I was doing with the puzzles, I was completely engrossed in the fictional story. There aren’t a lot of games based in WWI, so this is a treat.

Finish this game by Monday, 4/23 and take a screencap of the end (you can do this on your phone, computer, or console) for some extra credit. Do NOT play it during classtime. A, this isn’t appropriate and b) you need the volume on so you can actually hear the story and important historical information.
