Wanderlight:™ A Pilgrim’s Adventure is a groundbreaking online game for Catholic kids of all ages as well as those interested in learning about the Catholic faith. The game invites players to explore the Catholic Faith in an engaging and beautiful world and venture out in their role as “the Pilgrim”—a seeker on a quest to discover and experience core teachings of the faith while practicing how to “shine their light” and live as a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.
Players of all ages will enjoy Wanderlight. However, the content and quests are leveled and are targeted to what children aged 5-12 typically learn in school and religious education classes.
Throughout Wanderlight the Pilgrim completes a variety of quests, gaining knowledge and growing in faith along the way. Quests may involve finding lost items, helping neighbors, and solving mysteries. To see a sample of quests, please see here.
The gameplay also includes mini-games, such as mazes and sticker puzzles.
There is no difference in gameplay. The education version offers classroom rostering, administration, and reporting tools. Additionally, educators may limit the number of levels available to students. For a full overview of the educator section, please see here.
