What made you want to work at Immersed Games?

A friend of mine had told me about his internship with Immersed and about his positive experience with the company. I had been very interested in gaining experience in the video game industry, so I applied for an internship as well and worked remotely for about a month. I found that I worked very well with the rest of the art team and greatly enjoyed my experience, and I’m glad they felt the same way!

The Growth and Healing Powers of Video Games

The Growth and Healing Powers of Video Games


Many people have preconceptions that portray video gamers as being lazy and asocial. However, they don’t seem to understand the potential healing and growth powers of video games.  In Jane McGonigal’s new book, SuperBetter, she looks exactly at these areas of potential. McGonigal suffered a brain injury a couple of years ago, and instead of wallowing in her recovery process, she made a game out of it. She tried to find “allies” to help her healing and gave herself “power-ups” when she achieved her goals, all while putting on a secret persona in order to fight her monsters and work towards self-betterment.

Another learned confidence and persistence after realizing, through games, that anything can be accomplished with enough effort. One of our interns shared that as a child and recent immigrant to the United States, she learned to speak better English through a voice-command Pokémon game.

What made you want to work at Immersed Games?

I wanted to make sure that wherever I work has a fun atmosphere, even as we remain committed to providing a game experience that pushes the boundaries of videogames in general. I want to work on games that improve people’s lives, that help them learn and grow, either about the outside world, or about tapping into the human element within themselves. Immersed, I think, is a fantastic place to start.

10 Steam Games That Your Child Can Learn From


When it comes to learning through video games, there is a lot of criticism and naysaying. Many people call them “mind-rotting” or “a waste of time,” but when games are made for teaching, people call them “boring.” However, many popular games on Steam, a personal gaming library, can teach children surprisingly well, and they’ll have tons of fun doing it!

We have compiled a short list of these games that cover a broad array of subjects.
