I was looking at the vehicle guide and I was wondering, is the one wheeled vehicle still in the game?

Looks great! Tried to play it but at random times I wasn't able to select anything or click buttons, so wasn't able to play a lot.

Yes, it's in the same level, thats why you see a lot of the same mushrooms. We are hard at work producing more game assets to add more variaty to our environments

Yes you can play the game in your webbrowser, our screenshots are taken in one.

Puzzle adventure gameplay and the player will get a lot of freedom (non-linear gameplay). Yes, there will be interaction with other players but we haven't announced anything about that yet.
We are currently in pre-alpha stage, getting our artwork ready, testing out different things, nothing is set in stone so thats why we have'nt revealed a lot about the gameplay yet.

I agree about those suggestions. These screenshots are made in an early test level, and do not represent what the final game will look like. Our main levels should all be underground, so no atmosphere, but we will definitely try to add more light and color to our environments. We also plan to 'play' with some nice particle effects to create floating mushroom spores that give off some light.

Fireflies and glowworms are planned too and will infact play a big role in our games. The player will have a pet glowworm that can evolve in a firefly later on. Those will light up the environment around the player, so they are never in the dark. This is what they will look like: Sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net

Thanks for your feedback!

No decisions have been made in that area, everything is possible. We do hope to earn some money with this in some way.

Yes it is, but that’s exactly why we are doing this project! :)

There have been many education games, but most of the time they are not fun, that’s the main problem with these types of projects. We feel a game should always be fun, no matter what they are about. Most of the time the main problem is that those children know they are dealing with learning material, it's too obvious and not fun. They know they are being tested, and don't solve the problems because they want to but because they feel they have to, that’s not rewarding. You have to 'hide' it a bit and think about gameplay first.

They have been doing this for years with math riddles, trying to hide the boring 'math' in a story, to make it more interesting. Games are a great medium and give a lot of opportunities to do it better.
