Quote:
Odyssey is an all-new engaging and innovative mystery adventure game. Help Kai and her family escape their captors on the Wretched Islands – and learn the history of astronomy, mechanics, and scientific reasoning as you read Kai’s journal and solve puzzles along the way! In this unique and science-based game, the player navigates across a group of islands in the Caribbean in search of a 13-year old girl Kai and her family trapped and waiting to be rescued.

The game has an explicit purpose of teaching astronomy and mechanics from the ancient Greeks to Galileo. It does so by taking the player through an intellectual journey as the player is physically navigating through the islands. Gaming is seamlessly integrated with a historical approach to science and storytelling, through Kai’s in-game journal from which the player learns the story and the science content, which are needed to solve the puzzles. Players can expect a significant amount of reading. The game is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and is ideal for middle school and high school students and for adults who like to read about science.


A huge thanks to Her Interactive for their generosity.


Happy Gaming!

Ana luck

Apparently this game was released on Steam back in April (2017) and the developer is "The Young Socratics".

I don't know what HerInteractive has to do with the game unless they bought the rights to publish or distribute it or something.

According to the game's website, the game was a Kickstarter project and Steam Greenlight.

This seems to be the Kickstarter page for the game
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/136822213/odyssey-the-next-generation-science-game

It has very good reviews on Steam.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/558110/Odyssey__The_Next_Generation_Science_Game/

You can read about the members of the small development team that made the game at the bottom of the game's webpage
http://theodysseygame.com/

Not my thing because of motion sickness, but I hope the winners enjoy it.

Is this a childrens game? It looks pretty but sounds like its for children but I can't seem to find the age range. It also seems episodic.

Here is a quote from the description of the game on HeR Interactive's website:

Quote:
The game is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and is ideal for middle school and high school students and for adults who like to read about science.


A sequel game is planned.

Game Features (again from the HeR website):

Quote:
An immersive environment for exploration with a mystery-adventure story and science-based puzzles.
Plenty of scientific models within the game environment for investigation and conducting your own experiments.
A journal that reads like a mystery novel, while providing insight into the history of astronomy and mechanics from the ancient Greeks to Galileo, and clues for solving the puzzles.
Chapter 1 covers the origins of science, and the shift from the flat earth of the pre-Socratics to the spherical earth and physics of Aristotle.
Chapter 2 covers the shift from the geocentric universe of Ptolemy to the heliocentric universe of Copernicus and Galileo.
Chapter 3 covers the tussle between Galileo and the followers of Aristotle on free fall motion.
The third chapter ends midway through Galileo’s physics and we plan to continue the story in a sequel game, which would cover the following chapters:
Chapter 4 would cover the mathematics of uniformly accelerated motion as developed by Galileo (1D kinematics).
Chapter 5 would cover Galileo’s ideas about inertia and the mathematics of projectile motion (2D kinematics) .
Chapter 6 would complete the birth of a new physics with the construction of the three Laws of Motion and Universal Gravitation by Newton.

Thank you Marion

So it is aimed at the children and if what I am understanding that there are six Chapters and this is just the first?

If I am understanding the description correctly, the present game contains the first three chapters.

Becky also wrote a review of the game for Adventure Gamers, which you can find here.
