Chemistry can be a game

Educational game developer ACE EdVenture Studio and partner Artoncode Indonesia have released ChemCaper — Petticles in Peril, which is said to be the world’s first chemistry role playing game (RPG). Developed as part of ACE EdVenture Studio’s mission to reinvent education, it is believed that ChemCaper will change the learning landscape for students all over the world.

Concepts such as covalent, ionic and metallic bonding are encountered and learned through gameplay. Players will battle various foes with the help of their faithful Petticles, which are creatures formed via chemical bonding. Learning comes full circle with each Petticle demonstrating traits representing real-life particles. Additionally, students will learn how to separate compounds, refine fluids and sieve through precious metals in various mini games that will introduce them to the kinds of chemistry apparatus used in laboratories.

Petticles in Peril is ChemCaper’s first act of five and forms the prologue of the series, which ultimately aims to cover the basic high school chemistry syllabus. It is being showcased at the Tokyo Game Show from 17–20 September.
