Accessibility for educational games is a work in progress across the industry. We continually seek solutions to make our products fully accessible, and we strive to adhere to established standards for accessibility and usability on each new project. Some of our older products may not be accessible in all areas and have not been optimized for current accessibility recommendations. Here, we offer the content and approach of this game, so that learners are better able to find alternative content and ways of learning.

Content of the application

An evil vampire has cursed the once peaceful town of Treadsylvania! As monster hunters, players travel through Treadsylvania via All Terrain Vehicles to battle the evil vampire with their knowledge of safe riding skills. In your campaign, your skills as a rider will be tested as you face a variety of obstacles in your path.


Treadsylvania is reliant upon precision. This game requires clicking and dragging by mouse or trackpad. For example, different storylines appear when the cursor is dragged over different parts of the screen, and you travel throughout Treadsylvania by clicking certain icons throughout the game.
