Implementing multicultural education in Indonesia experiences various obstacles, including the emergence of opposition to the socialization and internalization of multicultural education values among conservative groups. Several conflicts have arisen in religious life due to a lack of multicultural awareness. Internalizing the value of religious moderation within the framework of multicultural education is an alternative approach for schools. This research aims to develop a gamified interactive multimedia integrated with religious moderation in learning discussion texts. The method used adapts Borg and Gall's research development methods. In analyzing students' needs, a data collection technique in the form of an intercultural sensitivity questionnaire was used. Teacher needs analysis used the Delphi technique with a consensus questionnaire instrument. Curriculum analysis in the form of literature and document studies. Analysis of the learning environment using direct observation techniques. Based on the needs analysis, students' cross-cultural communication beliefs need to be improved. Teachers need multicultural awareness by the framework of inclusive education in the applied curriculum. There are two specific profiles in the product's development, namely gamification and integration of religious moderation. Study results revealed that the development product is in accordance with the religious moderation needs of post-conflict students in Aceh. Behind the limitations of the research, further dissemination is needed to find out the picture of the developed product through further experimentation to find out a comprehensive description of the resulting product.
