The first ever online playground for Armenian children
Digital Pomegranate, in cooperation with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation releases “PlayLand Armenia” the first ever online playground for Armenian children.
During the hundredth anniversary, the Digital Pomegranate team decided to make its contribution. The goal was to create something positive, using what the team knows best – technology – to promote and maintain Armenian culture, language and heritage. Hence, PlayLand Armenia was born.
PlayLand Armenia is a free virtual world for children to play, learn and interact with each other in an exciting digital playground. Children, aged 5-10, now have a unique experience exploring the Armenian world, both digitally and through printable workbooks. By playing educational games on the virtual playground, they can earn coins to decorate the house, send postcards and much more.
The printable workbooks, requested by parents during the development phase, can be acquired separately. There are more than 20 workbooks filled with everyday activities such as shopping lists, family trees, story books for the entire family to get involved. The learning materials can be accessed through Playland Armenia permanent membership on our website (https://playlandarmenia.com/membership).
PlayLand Armenia has unique features, such as a secure built-in multi-language chat system that allows children to communicate with each other in their own language. These features and a great design resulted in a number of awards: best design and best 2D game of 2015 at the Open Game Championship.
The game is available in desktop versions for Mac and Windows, in mobile versions on Google Play Store, Amazon App Store for Android tablets and on Apple’s App Store for iPads.
Located at Gyumri Technology Center, Digital Pomegranate has endeavored great efforts to ensure the greatest security levels. The children are not allowed to publish any personal information, photos, and the chat function is controlled.
