Virtual playing cards unlock creativity.

Gameplay revolves around digital “story cards” that represent different aspects of storytelling and character development. Along with vivid art, these cards serve as writing prompts, helping students figure out what to write next at each step of the game and overcoming the dreaded “writer‘s block.”

Characters give students a personal stake.

Each student creates and controls their own unique character. This helps them care about the story that they’re writing and builds strong, lasting motivation and engagement. Characters grow and evolve as the students play and write, just like in a real story.

Students write amazing original stories, together.

Students take turns playing story cards and adding to the story. Paragraph by paragraph, they collaboratively write their own original story simply by playing the game. StoriumEDU’s simple rules motivate even the most reluctant young writers and keep the story moving forward.
