Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the indie text-based game Coming Out Simulator and Minecraft.Edu, the educational mod of Minecraft, as examples from a teacher education program to show ways of introducing pre-service teachers to teaching with non-didactical games. The examples are differentiated into teaching with existing commercial of the shelves and using educational mods for teaching purposes. The presented examples illustrate potentials und requirements of familiarizing teachers with non-didactical games as media for teaching.
