The game frames the collection of School Life Museum of Chania since September 2018 and is an output of a European partnership between Greece and Turkey under the ERASMUS program on digital story telling and visual teaching and learning in primary education. The game was attempted to support links with open digital resources and national repositories, highlighting cultural heritage as a pedagogical tool and inspiration for formal and informal education.

In the interactive game meet and talk through the canvas of an original digital narrative points of the cultural heritage of Crete and Ephesus. Apart from Photodentro and cultural metadata, links are also encouraged with the Center for Greek Language with a digital scenario of the writer focusing on educational cultural heritage. In addition, the game leads users to the digital library for European culture, the Europeana.
