Cyberchase PlaySpace was an interactive multimedia storytelling game released in March 2009 that was available on Cyberchase Online[1]. PlaySpace is similar to the PBS Kids-themed Dot's Story Factory[2].

In February 2011[3], PlaySpace was relaunched "by popular demand". This added new features for educators with PBS Teachers accounts, such as writing custom prompts, or choosing from available prompts, and sharing the prompt to a class by URL. According to Rob Lippincott, PBS's Senior Vice President of Education, "Cyberchase PlaySpace is the first PBS Teachers resource that allows educators to customize an online activity specifically for their students".

Gameplay

The main menu of PlaySpace includes a "featured stories" option as well as the creation mode. Matt introduces the latter mode with a skippable demo that shows how to play. The player can press Matt's screen later for help.[4]

To make their own story, the player responds to Cyberchase-themed mathematical prompts by creating a three-page story on the "story screen", with colored drawings, text, photos, and premade stickers. Stories can be emailed, printed onto one page, or viewed by others.[2]

The relaunch added video prompts in addition to the text prompts, the ability to upload up to three[4] photos, and "dozens of" premade stickers featuring Cyberchase characters and objects[1].
