Meeting young gamers on their own turf, we created a historical recreation of famous battlegrounds where Canadian soldiers fought and fell, on the wildly popular gaming platform Fortnite—and called the experience Remembrance Island. Here, gamers could explore five major conflict zones, stopping at each one, where they would get quick morsels of info about Canadian military exploits and the sacrifices made by those who served.
