Lincoln Island

Lincoln Island is a project where we have reimagined the Brayford campus into a fantasy video game, which is currently in a public beta release. The aim is to allow people to get a little bit of the “Lincoln experience” through a digital engagement without having to come on site. At the moment, we are all having to self isolate, and stay at home... but for many of us, the Brayford campus feels like part of our home and we miss being there. Also, many prospective students will have hoped to visit the campus before coming here for their studies. With the current government advice they would be unable to do that, but through the game they can at least get a sense of where everything is. In the game, although the buildings are “reimagined” to match their fantasy narrative, they are all placed in the same location, and all the paths and roads are in the same places at the same scale. Put simply, if you can learn to navigate Lincoln Island, you will be able to find your way around campus. Furthermore, all the AI characters in the game are based on real staff and students. 60 of our current Lincoln students have created their own NPC (non player character) who will tell you about their experiences as a student here. Furthermore, you can find representations of a number of our staff, my colleagues, who will tell you about their role, and give you advice.
We have tried to make this engagement as fun as possible. As with a regular role playing game, the NPCs will offer you quests, learning games designed to help you learn a bit about Lincoln. We hope that by engaging with a game like this that students could feel less anxious about moving to university and joining our community, because they will already know their way around, and they will know the names of some friendly people willing to support them.
