The Island of Ysola

The Island of Ysola


The island of Ysola has areas that spread across a variety of biomes and terrains. If you walk around the whole island you'll experience forest, grassland, swamp, volcanic desert, and even city environments. They each have their own charms, and possibly horrors as well, but we'll leave that up to you to discover. The educational benefit of having these varied environments is that not only will students come across different plants, animals, structures, and characters in each area, but they will be able to compare and contrast what they find. They can collect data about creatures and analyze it according to its source, and they can hypothesize about what may have caused differences in conditions and traits from biome to biome. The quest lines in the game facilitate this type of inquiry, but we hope that teachers and students will embark on their own independent investigations as well and get to know Ysola on an even deeper level.
