This paper describes IntegraGame a game for professional training and social empowerment of persons with intellectual disabilities. The game was designed based on a real case of professional integration, the InOut hostel near Barcelona, in which 90% of the personal has a disability. Integragame re- produces in 3D as realistically as possible the real hostel and presents several tasks to train cleaning procedures, vocab- ulary and social behavior. The game is adapted to a wide range of intellectual disability: it provides automatic navi- gation, uses verbal instructions and diferent types of visual assistance and feedback. It has been designed in narrow col- laboration with educators and managers. It has been tested by users throughout its development and evaluated with a group of students with ID. The results are positive show- ing that students could use the game, had fun with it and learned from it.
