Challenge yourself. Challenge your friends. Discover if you can Think Like Churchill.
This app lets you stand in the shoes of Winston Churchill as he faces some of the most difficult and challenging dilemmas in history. At the end of each scenario, your choice is dissected and analysed to help you understand how to become a better decision maker.
“The story of Winston Churchill’s life shows that one man can make a difference. He wasn’t always right, but his mixture of brains, brawn and guts enabled him to make difficult decisions quickly. This app takes you into his thinking process and helps to reveal the nature of his leadership genius. I have no doubt Churchill would be a man for apps of all kinds.” — Boris Johnson, Mayor of London.

Fantastic game - from an educator
As an educator and curriculum designer, it’s rare that I find a resource that I am so impressed with. Think Like Churchill is actually amazing. In fact I would love to see more of these types of mixed media history experiences get made. This app makes use of graphic novel elements, sound and visual design, primary source documents, and interactive game design. It’s a fantastic literacy experience for the player and a great way to explore POV and qualities of character. By asking the player to “think like Churchill” the player must get into the mind of the character and determine what that character, based on what the player has learned about him, is likely to have done when confronted with that choice. Even better, the game asks the player to justify his/her choice by selecting a reason for that choice. The game then compares the reasoning of the player with the reasoning of Churchill to see if you actually can “Think Like Churchill.”
Please let us know if you plan to make more of these- they would be great teaching tools in both English and History classrooms!

A must App for any history lover
It's one thing to know the rote facts, but it’s a completely different thing to unzip yourself from your own mind and roam around in the mind of one of history's most brilliant and colorful figures. The app is entertaining, educational and enlightening. More than the it nails the historical aspects. Very well researched. I only wish they had used Churchill's own speeches and audio recordings, but there's probably a scrum over the legal rights. This app should have been called WWCD (What Would Churchill Do). I recently (2018) went back a revisited this app and it is still amazing.
Great game. Very interesting story telling and interaction. However the only complaint I would have is that your decisions should affect and change the story. Continue to tell us what really happened but allow the gamer to change the story based on his choices.
