Video game helps kids learn about Shakespeare

Makers of a new video game are hoping students will become excited about Shakespeare by trading in their books for a spaceship.

University of Guelph English professor Dan Fischlin came up with 'Speare, based on the works of William Shakespeare, in an effort to get young people interested again in the literary legend.

As the character 'Speare, players must save the planet from evil ships that have captured the ancient text of Romeo and Juliet.
