Civic Seed is an open source multiplayer online role-playing game (SMMORPG) I co-developed with the Engagement Game Lab (an applied research lab at Emerson College) for Tufts University. Civic Seed draws inspiration from RPG-style games (such as http://browserquest.mozilla.org/), but was built from the ground up as a game that prepares university students for community work and civic engagement. The game aims to disrupt traditional online learning techniques through exploration, narrative, game mechanics, and immersive learning.

Civic Seed utilizes web sockets and runs on Node.js.
