Travel around Japan and learn Japanese
"Scenic Japanese" is a totally new game where you can travel around Japan and learn Japanese effortlessly.
Hello, "Scenic Japanese" is a totally new game which serves multiple purposes. I have always wanted to create a game which will be both amusing and informative. Basically this game will offer 3 benefits. In this game, you can
1.Travel all over Japan
Tokyo is the most famous city in Japan but Japan has many other unique beautiful spots. In this game, you will travel around Japan and will get familiar with Japanese geography, ordinary scenery, and sightseeing spots.
2.Learn Japanese very naturally
Japanese has always been considered one of the harder languages, but this game offers the easiest and most amusing way to learn Japanese. Both for a casual and serious purpose, this will be a great opportunity to learn the language.
3.have enjoyable experiences
"Scenic Japanese" is not a study but a game! The primary purpose of this game is offering enjoyable experiences. All you have to do is enjoy the game. By the end of the journey, you will have learned the basics of Japanese.
There are 3 game modes in this game. Here I will show the action mode. First, you will learn a few Japanese words together with illustrations.
Next, you will visit a sightseeing spot in Japan. Here you will be given 4 options to choose from. At this place what would you do? Based on the previous learning, choose the most appropriate action you should take.
Even if you choose a wrong option, the character actually does what you have chosen. Following that, you will learn how to use the word correctly. Here you can also learn grammar and increase your vocabulary.
If you choose the correct option, you can see the result of right action.
For more examples, please watch the video.
There are also analysis mode and sentence creation mode. In analysis mode, you will learn some Japanese words and will be required to analyze a photo or illustration and choose a correct answer. Here you can build up your vocabulary.
In sentence creation mode, you will learn how to construct a Japanese sentence and you can actually practice. The primary focus is on grammar, but you can also learn Japanese words in this mode. Action mode, analysis mode, and sentence creation mode work in harmony with each other.
The funding goal is 300000 yen (about $2700). If you think this game is interesting, please consider backing the project. For 1900 yen (about $17), you will get a copy of the digital version (PC game) and Learning assistance ebook. For 3900 yen (about $35), you will also get "Kanji learning ebook" and "The real Ninja ebook".
Kanji learning ebook
"Scenic Japanese" is for beginners so the game does not contain Kanji characters. This ebook is for people who want to learn Kanji. You can learn the most important Kanji characters with illustrations and photos.
"The real Ninja"
Many people think Ninja is fictional. The truth is Ninja is for real. We gathered many classical documents about Ninja, and reorganized them and created a new book. Most western people only know fictional Ninja. In this book, we will focus on real Ninja who carried out many missions. I am sure the book will be pretty interesting for people interested in Ninja. 90% of the book is written in English, so you can read the book without Japanese knowledge. However, 10% of the book is written in Japanese. As you deepen your Japanese language skills with the game, you will be able to read more and more those Japanese sentences. So the book can be used to assess your current Japanese proficiency. The ebook "The real Ninja" contains the following info.
Real Ninja skills , Real Ninja items, Real Ninja hiding place, Real Ninja philosophies, How to think like Ninja.
"Scenic Japanese" will let you get familiar with Japanese awesome spots, learn Japanese language very naturally, and have enjoyable experiences. I have made the learning process as easy and simple as possible. I believe this is the easiest way to learn Japanese. I hope you like it.
