Based on the FEPES project (First European Parliament Elections Simulator), this paper seeks to contribute to the growing field of research and experiments dealing with political sciences digital games. Awareness and democratic participation to the European union are significant and critical social issues. Digital narrative-based learning offers a means of raising citizens’awareness and in engaging them in participating to the democratic life of the European Union. An online survey was conducted in order to examine students’, coming from different fields of study, experience in serious gaming and their knowledge on the European Parliament.
