About this project
Brainasium is a 2D brain game for all ages. It features over 5 different brain puzzles and activities. The game puts every part of your brain to the test. Brainasium focuses on 4 core parts of the brain which are memory, calculation, focus. and speed. Brainasium also has a leveling system which you can be submitted as a highscore during gameplay. Each day the highscore tables are reset and new players can submit their levels.
The Age Of Learning
I believe the age of learning is upon us. More information is readily available for people to acquire. My goal with this game is to make people’s lives better by training their mental capacities. It’s very easy to make a action game and believe me I have had my share of action games. On the other hand making a learning game where people can actually benefit from is more challenging yet rewarding. I had a lot of fun working on this game and can’t wait to add my new ideas to the project once it gets funded.
Who will benefit from this game?
Brainasium is a very flexable game that accommodates many audiences. This game is great for people who want to improve their brain functions. This game can also suit children as well. Kids love a challenge and with brainasium they can be challenged while having fun. One of the reasons I put a level system in was because leveling up is a huge video game feature that kids know so well. Those who have memory loss would greatly benefit from this game as well. New networks in the brain form when people play brainasium. Even broken networks can be reformed and made whole. Also if you’re a nanny or teacher you can have your students play this game to facilitate learning.

We need your help!
Working on brainsium has been really an awesome expriernece. We want to make this game as awesome as possible. We also want to give all our time to this project. We would a love to export this project to mobile devices so you can play it on the go. But we currently don’t have a device to test it on. The game will have many more modes once it gets funded. With your help we can truly make the world brighter with fun brain games.
What we are working on now.
- Getting the timer in and functional.
- Finishing the art for the game.
- Adding Highscores.
- Make more levels.
- Adding music.
Having this game on the iphone and ipad would be really nice. With the excess money we could develop for those platforms.
Risks and challenges
Branasium is mostly finished but we would like to add more things to it. One risk is developing a game that is challenging for all ages. Currently we only have normal mode but we will soon program an easy and hard mode. Gameplay is always the most challenging part of a development cycle but I love doing it so it is not a problem at all. We also want to find an art style that fits all ages as well. These are all things we are currently working on.
If we find a flaw in a cool game mechanic we can always fall back on simpler yet fun mechanics.
The targeted platform is windows 8. The goal is to also get this game on all mobile devices including tablets.
