Lives in Transit

Lives in Transit (LiT) is an interactive, text-based game which simulates the experience of researching and writing global history. It offers historians a model for presenting their research in the form of serious gaming; and the game itself simulates the real-life experience of research for global history students.

The game storylines, which all grow out of scholarly work (both published and unpublished), present users with numerous tasks that recreate authentic academic situations, including the gathering and analysis of sources, practical problem-solving during fieldwork, and negotiations with colleagues under the pressure of deadlines.
