Abstract

This paper presents an online educational game called “SQL Planet” – based on the concept of text-mode adventures with storyline, storytelling, and characters. The peculiarity of this game, however, is that the player controls his character only through commands in Structured Query Language (SQL). All commands required to progress in the game are initially presented, so no prior SQL knowledge is required.
