Action Adventures in the Nano world.
We are developing NanoWarstm an engaging interactive 3d learning game based on understanding nano-sciences and nanotechnology.
The players are challenged in imaginative environments that promote learning about: Molecular building, Nano-Imaging, Creation of Nano-devices, Nano-medicine, Quantum Behaviour, Manipulating Electrons and Nano-Materials.NanoWarstm primary audience is 12-18 year olds but the game is an engaging learning experience irrespective of age. It educates players on topics from molecular construction to nano-medicine, and will be available from its 2007 launch through download for the PC and through retail for PlayStation Portable.
The game's plot is to save the world from destruction by Dr.Nevil and his army of nano-machines and nano-materials, whilst the player stealthily learns about real world nanotechnology. The game hero (player) supported by Dr. Goodlove and his assistants use nano-imaging and quantum theory, create nano-machines, develop nano-materials, and utilise an extraordinary shrinking machine to shrink the player to nanoscale to stop Dr. Nevil and save the world.
To ensure NanoWarstm is scientifically accurate we have partnered with Cientifica, a global nanotechnology consultancy and have put together a scientific advisory board incusing Professor Mark Welland, head of the Nanoscience Centre at the University of Cambridge and Soft Machines author Professor Richard Jones of the University of Sheffield. Our aim is to inspire and touch 28 million American and 6 million British teenagers, who play video games, to learn and know much more about nanotechnology.
We are seeking sponsorship for the game in order to fulfil our vision of making it available at no/minimal cost to pupils and teachers. To find out more about sponsorship please contact us.
We've had an enormous response from schools and teachers so far, if you represent a school and would like to participate in the beta testing program, please fill in the school registration form.
