In the game Enigma: The Lost Words of Atlantis, the player is an adventurer who travels around the world experiencing new cultures and history. The player must uncover the secrets of Atlantis by visiting new locations around the world, where they find artifacts and relics that they use to decode the cryptic language of Atlantean into English. It is an interactive, engaging story that is both fun and grounded in Learning Science.

Players harness the power of their Codex, an ancient Atlantean device, to decode the symbols they find in ancient relics and convert them into English. The video below shows an example of this gameplay, breaking down a word into its onset and rime, a technique often found in literacy curriculum.
