Adobe Story

Story is Adobe’s script-creation tool which can help new and experienced film and video writers to create scripts with correct formatting in various ways (film, video, 2-colum) as well as outputting it into practical schedules. Story was introduced in Adobe's Creative Suite 5 but from now on, it is available only online for free or Adobe Story Plus, a paid version that offers integrated scheduling and scriptwriting. The free version formats as you type, includes script templates, and lets you access your scripts from an iPhone. Teams should look to Adobe Story Plus, which lets you collaborate with team members, work offline, and assign roles. It also includes project management and scheduling tools that help turn a finished script into a finished video.
The collaborative paid version is part of the Creative Cloud, a subscription service that lets people access Adobe tools for a monthly price, to be released in May 2012.
The Story tool is a very handy but also a very powerful tool for script and scenario creation.

e-Vita project

The e-VITA project is co-funded by the Education and Culture DG under the Lifelong Learning Programme, KA 3. It promotes and investigates pedagogy-driven innovation integrating Game Based Learning [GBL] with intergenerational learning concepts.
Trough this project a set of serious games has been developed. Serious games are interactive e-simulations of real situations where the learner develops communication or behaviour strategies to reach an objective, manage situations, take contrasting elements into account and try different approaches to see how the context reacts to different inputs.
e-Vita games intend to increase European cultural awareness by conveying the cross-border experiences of older Europeans, allowing users to experience Europe in a time when strict travelling and migration rules, different economic and monetary systems, and intercultural uncertainty was commonplace.

Here you can find a poster which presents e-Vita games:

Game prototypes are available on the following webpage:
