About

World Word War is language-learning on steroids! To find out what happened to this game visit: www.WorldWordWar.com

A game that will make it easier for even more people to experience the joy of learning a language. It's a new and exciting game that allows you to learn hundreds of words of a language without trying to remember. Perfect for children to learn up to 6 different languages, or the adult geek that wants to start learning Japanese. Show me a geek that does not want to better understand those great Anime movies and I will show you an impostor! 

Only the power of words, mixed with dry ice and fun, can save the Earth from an alien invasion.

ORIGIN STORY

I wanted to learn Japanese and Irish but I didn't enjoy the language games I found out there. My brain said, "Hey, you know how to program games and you can animate! So make the game that needs to made!".

People ask me, "How can you animate and program?". A very long time ago when I was wee boy, at only 12 years of age, I meet with Don Bluth Studios. They made fantastic animated movies. Remember "The Land Before Time" and "Anastasia"? They really liked my work, and said they wanted to hire me as an apprentice when I turned 15. While waiting they helped me develop from home. Unfortunately when the time came the Studio had to close down. I almost became an animator for Hollywood movies. During my "OMG! My teenage life is over now!" mourning period I developed a love for programming. Years later, looking back, I can see that experience was good for me. It "levelled me up" to program and animate. I believe we should always keep ours dreams burning. That is also another reason why I created this game.

My 4 aims to make a language game were:  

  • Works subconsciously.
  • Gives meaningful purpose to every word and instant action.
  • A real world sense of achievement as well as in game achievements.
  • And is very entertaining.
Feedback from playtesters confirm that those aims have been achieved.

HELP CREATE THIS GAME

I put World Word War on Kickstarter because it will help improve the game by having a community that cares.


I'm at the stage now that I need to hire vocal artists for each language (native speakers). I've already found these talented people who are born and raised in their own countries (U.S.A, Ireland, Japan, China, Philippines, and Spain) and they live my city.

You can download the music in the trailer for free. It's called Mega Rust, and Carefree Melody by Twin Musicom.

Risks and challenges

Working with so many languages people may think poses a risk. However, used to deal with localization/localisation of training apps as well as creating them. Dealing with up to 18 languages, so that aspect actually is not a problem.

To ensure the game is not delayed I've not offered t-shirts or cups. If you would like to see this game made consider backing this project. In return you'll get an exiting game.... and a new language too. Thank you.
