Locative games are being used increasingly in larger scale to support the learning process. We are working on a specific subclass of such games, whose main focus is the learning support necessary for the development of decision-making skills. As purpose, we are building the project Clic&Ação-ARLA. This paper presents the conception of an extension of the aforementioned facing Authoring and Realization of Locative Adventures with a focus on decision-making skills development.
