Working on an Edutainment Title

Hey I am working on a game for kids that will help them with their math but in a fun way. What I am finding out is that this game can be addicting and fun for parents also. So what I am thinking of doing is adding levels so the whole family can play. What do you guys think is it to wide an audience and how would that effect marketing? Can't really say anything about the game other than it is good.

Hello Thomalex

Math as education is a tough sell. Try to pump up the fun side of your app, in game design they call this putting a skin ( theme) over the structure of the game mechanics. In other words disguise the math part as best as you can.

STR8TS , STR8TS 6X6 , DOMINO DICE , PUZZLE DICE,
CAVEMAN TEST, 1 TO 25, SUDOKU+STR8TS, ZARTE, ABSORB WATER, YOU, TIME SHEET (PHOTO VERIFIED),Office Alarm, Travel weather, dock clock,

You know I am thinking about turning this is to a puzzle for an older crowd. I do believe this would be and intriguing game I am not sure 3 graders and up would like it.
