Games are a digital medium that continues to develop, especially during the 2019 Covid pandemic. Game is a combination of multimedia and interaction that has proven successful in attracting user attention compared to other digital media. This research was developed with the following stages, namely initialization consisting of game idea research. Research on appropriate game genres, pre-production, production which consist of programming and modeling, and testing including functional testing and testing on users who have the potential to use this game for validation. Based on the data obtained, the overall value of positive perceptions is 70.68%, while negative perceptions weigh 29.32%.
