Chemistry-Based RPG ChemCaper Hits Kickstarter

Educational games have always been around, but not every one of them could be The Oregon Trail. ChemCaper is a modern look at the edutainment genre that hopes to create a fun, educational take on chemistry.

How in the heck can you make chemistry fun for someone who hates science? Dress it up in the trappings of an adorable RPG! For example, the many lands in ChemCaper are based around the periodic table of elements. Players must skillfully select elements like sodium chloride in battle to dominate foes.

ChemCaper is raising funds via Kickstarter and hopes to make $50,000 by February 11. You can also help support the title by simply upvoting it on Steam Greenlight.
