Today, digital games that incorporate multi-ending scenarios are not uncommon in the entertainment field. However, there is no such application of the multiple endings to learning games and educational situations. Therefore, there are no studies that have examined the learning effects of the multiple endings in learning games. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a multiple endings learning game on learners' motivation and learning effectiveness. To test effectiveness of multiple endings, a multiple endings learning novel game was designed in the experiment. The results of the experiment showed that the learners of group with multiple endings practiced more often. In addition, the multi group performed better. And the results also showed that the learners in the multi group had a higher sense of achievement and self-determination than those in the single group. Based on these experiments, this study clarified that the multiple endings can improve the learning effect.
