Abstract : Childhood is the best part of life. A child enjoys anything and everything in this world without any discriminations. It is also the period of rapid brain development, where the kids learn the stepping stones for life. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a group of developmental disabilities that causes major impairments in social, communication and behavioural aspects of the children. Unlike other children, an autistic kid finds it difficult to go along and communicate with others. Social interactions and communication are the major aspects for peaceful living of any human being, and these children face difficulties in the same. So, we have developed a virtual reality based game engine that would attract the children and make them enjoy interacting with it while increasing the chance for learning. As the children continues playing this game, their learning and interacting ability increases nullifying some effects of autism, thus making it a boon for these kids.
