Tales of Iona told through new video game

Press/Media: Other


It's a tiny island just three miles long and permanent home to only 120 or so, but it holds an iconic place in Scotland's history now to be conveyed through the medium of a video game.

The story of Iona, 'the cradle of Christianity in Scotland', will be brought to life for school children around the world through an interactive free video game, complete with a ‘spooky’ monk figure. It has been developed by Aberdeen University in collaboration with a commercial offshoot of Abertay University.
