Sharkworld: PRINCE2 Project Management Simulation Game
In Sharkworld, you take on the role of a project manager who will lead a big-budget construction project in Shanghai, China. The goal of the game is to successfully construct the shark basin, Sharkworld, within the time limit. The game takes about three hours to play. The player will interact with characters from the game, through dialogues in the game and actual e-mail messages. The game even continues with optional SMS text messages on the player’s mobile phone.
The game presents realistic dilemmas that encourage players to make decisions based on their knowledge of project management. The player will practice different project management skills, such as planning and risk management. In this interactive experience, players will also be trained in soft skills, such as managing customer expectations and managing employee motivation on the work floor.
Sharkworld’s underlying storyline is very entertaining and will keep you coming back to replay the game to see different outcomes. Characters in the game are brought to life by actors, and all the movie sequences in the game are shot on location in Shanghai.
