Students are always having difficulties in remembering the topics and terms thought in theory modules. These findings paved ways to activity-based learning in classes. Educators had been introducing methods in this type of learning in the form of role plays, puzzles, interactive on-line quizzes and games. One of these methods is the integrated simulation game which is an interactive gaming platform to create authentic learning to the gamers and engages them as virtual users providing an integrative, fun and simulated learning experience. The effectiveness of the game is attributed in the development of each game component so it is focused on simulating the real environment while integrating other learning goals which is presented in the integrated design model proposed in this paper.
