Chemistry Creativity Chaos
Pyromaniacs is mobile game where users play the part of the niece of a famous female scientist. Her aunt has to leave suddenly to assist with a colleague’s cold fusion reactor, but she entrusts our heroine with her wondrous fireworks laboratory.
Here our player is assisted by the Pyromaniacs – cute creatures who love all things to do with chemistry and the potential for pretty pyrotechnic effects. They get to experiment with adding different fantastical elements together to discover the right combination needed to create new types of fireworks. Inspired by classic puzzle games such as Mastermind, this game is brought closer to the work of real-life scientists as we made this experimentation and discovery mechanic take players through the scientific process.
From a first guess at a combination, to conducting experiments, to analysing that data to deduce what the correct combination is and making a discovery, this process is embedded in a puzzle game that doesn’t make it explicitly educational, but teaches deduction and scientific thinking.
Help us make Pyromaniacs ready for the world!
Sea Monster is trying to:
- Raise funding to fully develop the existing game, animated content to support the narrative and additional merchandise development.
- Find sales & marketing partners, either in the UK or internationally.
- This could include brands who want to licence / partner with us.
- Identify international grant or corporate funding opportunities to build additional games and content to to further break the big educational myths.
