Set in the years of the Peloponnesian war the eleventh instalment of the game series Assassin’s Creed transfers the player to the world of Classics. The game developers make claims of accuracy in the detail of representation. We will test such claims (and have fun) together with the main character, Misthios, who is making her way to classical Athens and discusses with Socrates while trying to bring together her fractured family and stop an ancient and much dangerous cult.

Work together as we guide you through the steps to create your very own Story Adventure Game on the web with the Twine tool.
You don't need to write any code to create an adventure story with Twine, but you can improve your stories with variables, conditional logic, images, gifs, sound effects, and video shorts, for a multimedia experience.
Discover how you can use openly licensed images and materials from the University of Edinburgh museum, library, archives, and Media Hopper’s Open Media Bank for your own creative endeavours.
The proliferation of bots within numerous platforms (e.g. Twitter, Facebook Messenger, web, SMS) is prominent in the commercial sector (e.g. ASOS customer support, Twitter bot, Skyscanner, Facebook Messenger bot), though we have seen limited usage of bots within education (for both teaching and administrative tasks). This may be due to technological or ethical concerns, however the software has evolved to be more accessible allowing users not familiar or comfortable within coding to design and build their own bots (via GUI) which can be utilised across numerous platforms.
