We make it easy to fall in love with math.
Our games make math emotionally accessible for adult players so they can explore, grow while feeling rewarded for their efforts.
Being human means being a tool-user. Taking something foreign to ourselves and applying it reach our goals.
One such tool is math
Math is a powerful tool of abstraction. It can make our little more than monkey brains fathom the deepest secrets of the universe. With math we can know the unknowable. With math we can withness the invisible. With math we can avoid disasters and build a better tomorrow.
Math is our best tool for taming the word we live in - only this tool seems to have never been design for humans.
We have been caught up in trying to understand math. Trying to know it, teach it, explain it, but we seem to have not ever tried to design it. We have made math speak to the brain alone as if humans were only rational, not emotional beings.
This is the cause of maths long history of inaccessibility. For most of maths history it was a philosophical play thing of the elites. In ancient Greece only the nobility had the means to spend time contemplating squaring the circle. This elitist tradition transformed from wealth and privilege to talent. In the modern era mathematicians were selected from the very top of the intellectual hierarchy. We call these people talented, intelligent, geniuses.
But maybe they just liked math? Maybe they found an emotional connection with the abstract that few people ever get to see?
We think it’s high time to democratize math, making it truly accessible by making it speak to the need of ordinary emotional human beings.
We are in working hard to figure out how math works as entertainment.
We are currently working on our next game Heroes & Zeros a game about creativity and exploration of math. The development of heros and zeros is supported by the danish film funds game schema.
We are very exited about bringing Heroes and Zeros into the world. This game has shown some amazing results in the early prototype fase. Heros and zeros will be our first game that makes people fall in love with math.
We have launched our pioneer game Digit Dare and with it gained a deeper understanding of how to solve the problem.
Digit Dare is available in both Google Play and Apple App stores. Digit Dare was developed with funding from the Danish ministry of education
