About

The ultimate learning adventure for your children...
all packed into an app!

The Brain Train is our brain child (pun completely intended!) solution to a growing problem in raising children today – kids are being extremely unproductive with screens. We want to make screen time a chance for children to learn about the world, experience mind-blowing nature at its finest... and still have a blast!

Before we go ahead, here's a bullet-point summary for the busier parents.

What The Brain Train is NOT:

  • Another math or science learning app (That's what school is for!)
  • Another app to train your brain... which we know comes up a lot when you Google "The Brain Train". (We don't have budget for Search Engine Optimization, all our savings go into the app!)

What you can expect:

  • An original, immersive story
  • Diverse cast of characters (because no child should ever feel excluded from a game!)
  • Wealth of knowledge in bite-sized pieces that would make any walking encyclopedia proud
  • Art with a crazy attention to detail, parents will wish this comes in a poster (And it does. See "Rewards". :P)
  • Puzzles that will push logic and encourage out-of-the-box creativity
  • Mini-games on life skills, like cooking, finances, budgeting, survival, career prep, musicality, sports, and the list goes on! (These are life skills for every child – boy and girl alike!)
  • Last but not the least, a responsible team behind this Kickstarter... as you can tell from the honest funding goal set. The accurately large goal hopefully assures you that (1) we are not some big corporation using Kickstarter as a marketing tool with tiny goals because they don't actually need the money, and (2) we care about the quality we give to our backers, so we refuse to make empty promises by setting a discounted goal just to keep your funds. It's all or nothing!

Why we need Kickstarter and YOU

It looks like we have it all ready to go... but no, this is just the tip of the iceberg! You're only looking at 5% of the art and programming here, we have so much more to go... like another 45 scenes and mini-games. The app needs these to be the best it can be for the generation of our future. This is why we really need the help of backers like yourself.

Now, the busier parents can (hopefully) head to the pledge bar on the right with a clear and complete understanding of what you're pledging for.

For those who have a little more time, let the visuals do the talking!

Risks and challenges

Here at Thinkofmagic Studios, you can be sure that we have meticulously planned out our approach towards the execution of this campaign. The combined experience of a team of utmost professionalism provides the best chance for you to receive a product that meets your expectations

Having said that, life has a habit of throwing spanners in the works. Some challenges we might face along he way include:
1) Illness / injury / death
- Although unlikely, this is a small team, and it's always possible that something could happen to one of us
- Some catastrophes can possibly devastate the key members in the team and completely halt development, but in any case, we promise to do everything in our power to overcome any disaster we might face
- At the end of the day, we promise to ensure communication, and keep you guys in the loop

2) Game design flaws
- The game mechanics and designs are fluid and not set in stone
- There might be instances where we feel that a certain game design or mechanic does not end up looking and feeling like initially envisioned
- The finished product will continue to evolve as we generate ideas and test mechanics
- Once again, communication is of utmost importance, and we will strive to let you guys know of changes to key game mechanics
