Science Reviews Complete, Production Progress, eBooks and Shipping the My First Science Textbooks

Hello Backers!

Here's what we've been up to over the past month!

  • Had all three books reviewed multiple times by our teams of biologists, chemists, physicists, parents and educators who volunteered to be a part of our review panel. 
  • Decided how best to integrate their insights and suggestions into the current book series. 
  • Our author, Mary Wissinger, re-wrote sections of the book to make the content even more scientifically and historically clear and robust.
  • Our artist, Danielle Pioli, modified, re-arranged and even created some brand new artwork to reflect changes we made.
  • Starting prepping the files for eBook publication through both ePub and Kindle - those should be available to download very soon! 

So far, Science Wide Open is even better than we could have expected and we are so excited to share the final product with you when it's complete!!!

My First Science Textbooks are Complete!

In other news, we're been really busy shipping out the My First Science Textbooks and Virulence: An Infectious Card Game from our past two Kickstarter campaigns and getting ready for our next game launch for Cytosis: A Cell Biology Game. 

 

If you want to introduce any tiny scientists in your life to some chemistry basics, this is the perfect way to do so!

Also, just aired this week - A Kickstarter Launch Story!

We've been filming a mini-documentary series that gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the process I went though to design our next game.

 

It has a little about my story and my family (my daughter gets her good looks from me... hahah) what it takes to gamify a hard science topic like cell biology, and common pitfalls when taking a game from an idea to a finished product. 

Here's a link to Episode 1 if you want to check it out!

Overflowing with appreciation,

John
