Chemistry is one of the hardest science subjects in the school for most of students. But, what if you learning Chemistry through a game? Well, meet the Chemistry RPG ChemCaper, the first RPG that combining basic Chemistry education with game.
You can watch the first trailer for their Kickstarter campaign below:
To get an overview, this is the official outline of the game taken from its official website:
“ChemCaper, a Chemistry role playing game where you acquire skills, level up, and fight battles to restore order in the world of Reac Ta.
This tale centers on Roub, a young Moon Being from Reac Ta, who has a premonition about Xenon – the Moon Beings’ missing deity. He is sent on a quest to train in his fighting skills and follow the trail of rumors of a glowing figure appearing in Camp Ungku. Roub eventually returns bearing indeterminate news on the elusive deity, only to discover that disaster has struck Reac Ta and that his parents could be in danger.
Immerse yourself in this RPG in which elements, compounds, and bonds have jumped to life within a striking game environment. ChemCaper is the world’s first digital education game which genuinely bridges the gap between education and entertainment.“
ChemCaper is developed by ACE EdVenture Studio in collaboration with Artoncode, a leading Indonesian game developer with more than two decades of experience in the game industry. It will feature the soundtracks from Norihiko Hibino, a talented musician who contributes song composition for several famous games such as Metal Gear Solid and Bayonetta series.
ChemCaper bring a whole level of gamifying the education by turning it into a full-pledged RPG game. The game will be based on IGCSE Chemistry curriculum.
The clever twist of gamifying Chemistry can be found in the characters and the world map:
Roub is a Moon Being and the first hero available in the game. He is young, charming, but like to complaining about how troublesome everything is. However, he has enough courage to set venture discovering the culprit behind this sinister event.
The Moon Beings represent the reactive metals in the periodic table. So, you can guess that Roub Idyum’s name is based on the Rubidium.
This cute little ‘pet’ can be combined into powerful weapons against your enemies in battles. Petticles representing molecules in Chemistry. The above petticles, Lith, is derived from the Lithium. Petticles can be set in the battle formation as can be seen in the below screenshot.
The basic mapping of the Elemental Nations comes from the Periodic Table in Chemistry. The worlds will feature a wide array of landscapes, from floating plainds to sumbermerged cities.
The battle system is taking inspiration from the Final Fantasy series, which is using the Active Time Battle (ATB) system. Time will still pass when you accessing your menus in battle. This will provide a good challenge in the battle to make efficient movement and quick decision.
ChamCaper Act 1: Petticles in Peril will be available for download in Android and iOS in March 14, 2016. It will be officially launched at Game Developers Conference (GDC) at San Fransisco on March 16. The enhanced version for PC is scheduled for Steam release in 2017.
