Self-assessment is an important tool to improve student performance. A good serious game (SG) would be a very strong self-assessment tool because of the additional motivational aspects. However, self-assessment tools have to fit the learning matters of a course by 100 %, what general SG seldom do. The goal of this work is to build a simple SG editor each teacher can adjust to the learning goals of his course. Here we present the development of a game-editor for teachers for a puzzle-style game. By this editor teachers can edit their own course based game without sophisticated computer knowledge. The game mechanics meet the requirements of mobile- and micro-learning strategies. Furthermore, the game implements learning analytics for students as well as for teachers. The game engine and the editor are both based on standard Web technologies. The source code is maintained as an open source project to lower the barriers for further uptake.
