Up for some real science wrapped in fun?

Kickstarter-backed Odyssey, from The Young Socratics, is a science adventure that will take you on an intellectual journey combining gaming with a historical approach to science and storytelling. The game mirrors the chronological progression of ideas as they’ve been presented by scientists from the ancient Greeks to Galileo. You’ll have fun and learn things at the same time.

The game has a Myst-like feel to it, as you traverse a group of islands in response to a distress call from 13-year-old Kai. She and her famiy are trapped and in need of rescue. In order to reach them, you’ll be solving puzzles using information from Kai’s in-game journal, fragments of which are scattered across the islands.

Chapters 1-3 of the six-chapter game for Windows and Mac have been released on Steam Early Access at a time-limited 25% discount. The plan is to release Chapters 4-6 as a sequel.

Odyssey has been developed for players age 11+. Also, know that a significant amount of reading will be required.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
