The use of games in language learning has become increasingly popular with the advancement of technology. One such approach that uses technology to engage learner in language learning is game-based learning. At present, Sarawak has many indigenous languages and of it is the Bidayuh language. To date, there are not many works out there that focuses on using native language in game-based learning. That being said, new work is inspired to incorporate this native language in learning by using game-based approach. Thus, this project is conducted to incorporate interactive games in Bidayuh language and to develop a web based application for learning of Bidayuh language for the public. Furthermore, the proposed application will help in studying leaner's perception towards the learning environment. A post survey was used to collect data about leaner's learning experience and their attitude towards the proposed application. From the evaluation results between non-Bidayuh speakers and Bidayuh speakers, it shows that this gamebased approach shows a good impact in terms of language learning. The conclusion can also be drawn that learner's level of motivation has improved in using game-based learning. Following the evaluation, some recommendation to further enhance the application will also be presented.
