Released in 2002, America’s Army (AA) is the most successful serious game created. A high-quality downloadable game, funded and developed by the United States Army boasted over 8 million users in 2007. America’s Army is a robust, fun first-person shooter (FPS) game, as well as a showcase of Army values. Two teams of Champlain students were challenged to create a polished, playable mission level under the guidance of AA’s development team. The Mission Editor, a tool included with the game comes with all of the art assets (textures, objects, sounds, etc) to create a map. Given the pieces, the students used them to design and create a believable environment and a fun, playable mission. Both DISTRICT and CANYON maps were accepted as official America’s Army maps launched for public use.
