Professor Andrew Burn formally launched the new Missionmaker Macbeth software in a keynote speech at the Off the Page – Chapter 2 day at the British Library in April.

The launch proposed the value of exploring literature through videogame design, and  featured demonstrations of the software in use by UCL IOE trainee English teachers. The software was developed by Abel Drew and Bruno de Paula, in a collaboration between DARE and DDZ Games Ltd, and funded by a UCL HEIF grant.
