If you’ve been tracking our progress, you will be familiar with the following videos…
Possibly the most difficult aspect of this project has been the video qualities themselves. Our research and discussion have created quite a fun adventure. The feedback from different pools have been incredibly useful and encouraging.
To feed our feedback loop and share our project abroad we started by tweeting our videos and posting them in multiple relevant sub-reddit pages such as; r/homeschool, r/history, r/Assassinscreed, and more along similar lines.
We particularly got suggestions from the history seb-reddits. We also recieved personal opinions and experiences particularly from the Assassin Creed and homeschooler pages.
These were immensely helpful. Kurt and I took all their feedback into consideration for our following and future videos. Especially some homeschoolers suggestions and reflections on their experience. We wanted to do this because homeschoolers use all sorts of tools to learn. From experience, I can say that the Assassin Creed series has contributed to my homeschooling history curriculum. Hence our particular consideration.
Here is our Origins review. We started with this one because we both were curious about historical accuracies and received recommendations from reddit users about this particular game.
Kurt elaborates further in his blog about some feedback and directions we are hoping to take from here.
Kurt and I trying something new where we are videoing our next two videos together, merging them into a double review. This is partly for the sake of time, but also because these two games are a continuation of the same story and therefore are very similar. We will see how successful this video is and iterate according to feedback given.
For now, we are busy playing history! Watch this space for more videos. And by all means, comment your thoughts on your favourite game!
