LOS ANGELES – Monday, June 29, 2015- Classroom Inc.’s literacy learning game After the Storm has won the Bronze award in the International Serious Play Awards competition. Aligned with the Serious Game Association’s philosophy that games have the capacity to revolutionize learning, After the Storm won the award as it continues to make a remarkable impact on students who are struggling with reading and writing.

After the Storm is the result of a partnership with FableVision Studios, the lead developer of the game. Following up on the success of After the Storm, Classroom Inc. is preparing to grow its product offerings with the release of a new learning game Community in Crisis this summer, also being created in collaboration with FableVision Studios. This distinction marks the third award for After the Storm, after winning a finalist spot on the Association of American Publisher’s REVERE Awards list and EdTech Digest’s 2015 Cool Tool Awards.

More than 25 studios, publishers, companies, and academic student groups addressing the growth of games for learning or “serious games,” won gold, silver and bronze honors across multiple categories in the 2015 International Serious Play Awards competition.

The program recognizes outstanding examples of titles that deliver a high quality of engagement and learning opportunities for students, employees, or other education/training situations.
