DramaQueen the game is now available in early access

Creative games like Minecraft, Roblox, and Fortnite have evolved into the storytelling platforms of the digital age. The desire to tell stories is as old as mankind itself, yet there are no games designed to scratch that itch.

DramaQueen lets players tell their own stories, and share them with their friends, for fun, for learning or for both. Based on scientifically validated teaching methodologies and solid game design, DramaQueen is not just a fun game, but also a strong tool for language-, creative writing- and drama teachers.

DramaQueen is supported by the Danish Ministry of Education, and the Danish Film Institute, for its educational and entertainment potential. We are proud to announce that DramaQueen is now freely available as a browser game and PC download.
