Building and Construction

White Card game

The White Card Game offers an engaging and entertaining way to deliver training in CPCCOHS1001A - Work safely in the construction industry.
Through a first person perspective the goal of the game is to identify, control and report workplace hazards on a construction site without getting injured or causing the death of workmates.
By creating a virtual experience of being on a building site, the game offers real life challenges, problems and risks yet provides a safe place in which to learn and explore.
DOWNLOAD REQUIRED
The project is a collaboration between Victoria University, and Oztron Media, and is funded by the National VET E-Learning Strategy.

CDX has that most polished graphics you will probably see in a Flash game for a while. In fact, they used real actors and video segments inside the game. The first episode is called “Amnesia,” and you need to find out what is going on on the room where you wake up.




Dark Visionsjhorowitz_darkvisions_screen1.jpg

In Dark Visions, the year is 1928 and you play the role of Emma Fischer, an inquisitive-minded young niece of Dr. Frank Mahler. The doctor runs a mental clinic at his mansion in New Hampshire, and he just sent a letter to his sister requesting Emma's help as an assistant. Upon arrival, however, something doesn't seem right. Where is the doctor? Why is his colleague, James Thaxton Smith, so evasive on the subject of the doctor's whereabouts? And why does the mansion seem deserted? Thus begins your adventure as you seek to find answers and understand just what's been going on at the mysterious Hill Crest Manor.
From the walkthrough by J-Witz
