This paper explores the theoretical and practical aspects involved in the development and deployment of a complex virtual learning space that includes industry standards of game development and communication technologies. In this virtual space (another country) learners explore interesting worlds to solve a mystery. From the inner city, using a 3D landscape, players (represented by avatars) access different portals to knowledge. Here in panoramic view players explore different virtual spaces to find clues to solve the mystery.
