The way in which studentsare being educated is evolving; the traditional teaching paradigm, where formaland non-formal education are treated as a mutually exclusive, mustbe changed and turned into a new learning paradigm where formal and non-formaleducation are treated as one in order to achieve a meaningful and relevantlearning. In Mexico, it is clear that educational level of studentsis barely improving in elementary school students, considering basic topics onMath, Science, and Spanish. There is a need to integrate more efficientmechanisms, like serious video games, in non-formal environment for studentsand increase learning opportunities beyond the classroom. Therefore, it isenvisaged as a possibility, the large scale production of video games toaddress this problematic. But, a reason why it is not often carried out thelarge scale development of digital resources is the lack of well-defineddevelopment processes and documented experiences. This research will providesolution to the lack of well-defined development processes for large scaleproduction of serious video games, presenting a proposal for a developmentprocess with fundamentals in software engineering. The overall findings of theresearch show that there is an improvement in the knowledge acquisition of thestudents.
