Memories of Mexico

Museums of World Culture

Why read about historical events when you can jump right into them? Together with The National Museums of World Culture we have created an immersive and gamified history lesson about three eras of Mexico's past.

We believe that the future is immersive. We want to create 'immersive lessons' for classrooms and learning environments. Memories of Mexico is a great example of what is possible when you think outside the box.

The Story

Your journey begins in a sacred Mexican cave where the guardians of history preserve the memories of the past. Suddenly, a strange figure appears and steals all the memorabilia, including the guardians’ memories of the past. All memories of ancient Mexico are now lost.

Envisioned and inspired by older point-&-click adventure games. In Memories of Mexico it’s your mission to find all the lost memorabilia that has been scattered throughout history. During this experience you will get to explore Mexico during a few select time-periods and civilizations including the Olmec, Aztec and Maya cultures. Come face to face with exciting characters who will help you complete your mission to restore the memories of Mexico.

Since its launch in Sweden, the digital experience has been integrated into hundreds of upper secondary schools, benefiting students aged 12-16. It includes comprehensive materials and a lesson plan, enabling teachers to seamlessly incorporate the experience into their classrooms. All content is aligned with the Swedish school curriculum, ensuring that it supports educational objectives effectively.

Working alongside IVAR Studios to develop 'Memories of Mexico' was a great experience. Their team's blend of technical expertise and storytelling magic together with our ideas, models and research turned our goals into a vivid, immersive reality. For us at the museum, venturing into VR was uncharted territory, and IVAR's guidance, creativity, and insights were invaluable.
