App description: ChemCaper: Act I - Petticles in Peril is the first role-playing game in the world to bridge education and mainstream gaming. Built from the ground up with Chemistry concepts, it elevates learning Chemistry into the digital realm, brings the fascination with the subject into your screens and takes the dread out of learning.

What if your world came crashing down, and You. Werent. There.

Roub, a young Moon Being, is charged with searching for his peoples lost deity. He gets thrown into the lush world of Camp Ungku upon rumors that a glowing, mysterious being was there.

Having crash landed on the banks of sunny Camp Ungku, he is polarised into a cloudy search for answers, bearing the unnerving uncertainty of his parents fate as news of waves of attacks on his homeland, Reac Ta, crash upon his conscience.

Something sinister has turned the friendly petticles into vicious scheming creatures, aiding its motivation attacking the Moon Beings indiscriminately.

Young, pampered Roub now bears the weight of his world on his shoulders to demystify the conundrum that riddles it and its beings, whether he knows it or not.

What people are saying

"ChemCaper is educational the way Civilization is educational. It won't teach you the subject directly; instead, fun is given top priority and the educational foundation on which it's based just permeates every aspect of the game. It's an education-laced supplement to life rather than an attempt at digitizing textbooks for those kids and their play-a-ma-jigs." - Indie Games

"An intriguing game with some fantastic looking artwork and core gameplay that looks set to bridge the gap between education and entertainment, making something that really does make learning fun." - Alpha Beta Gamer

"The game is very polished with great music and graphics. I also love the crafting system, which is cleverly named and designed after the periodic table. The battle is done real-time turn-based which reminds me of Chrono Trigger." - Beta Tester

"This really feels like one of the most polished iOS games I have played." - Beta Tester

Looks intriguing, but I'm surprised about it being under "education" instead of "games." Is it meant for kids?

Adults, kids... Anyone who wants to learn about chemistry, I imagine.

This looks awesome! Seems like it was a successfully funded and FULFILLED Kickstarter project, which is always nice to see.

I am curious how long the game is especially since it says ACT 1 in the title.

@Dev, is this the same version that was offered as a Beta to play through TestFlight? I'm from the KickStarter but the TestFlight code is the only one received. Thanks

Hey everyone, apologies for the late reply. Time differences over here

ChemCaper is primarily to introduce kids to Chemistry before they learn it in highschool. But with that in mind we did also develop it with RPG enjoyment in mind so everyone can enjoy it. The bonus is that perhaps adults who used to have a hard time learning Chemistry can have fun with it too

Since this is a first, we're testing the waters by putting under "Education" so we'll see how that goes.
