It’s not about politics; it’s about the future of humanity

We bring news about our work with “Save the seas”, where Facebook wants us to sign a document saying that this new scenario of Math Classroom Challenge has a hidden political agenda. Of course we are not in the mood to start playing that game about being something like spies or something like that.

So we have written a document on IndieDB explaining our work and why is important saving the seas from plastics and debris, and why this work has nothing to do with politics. “Save the seas is a game”, and we want to encourage people to learn to love and take care of the seas.

You can read the document here on IndieDB. Thank you!

Save the seas version 1.87A with “Water polluted”

We have included some minor fixes in version 1.87A of Math Classroom Challenge, being the most important the new behavior of speedboats.

But we’ve also included a new element: “Water polluted”. Every time the player throws “math energy” to clean the plastics, the water gets polluted. So a new objective in the game is to avoid pollute the water too much. To achieve that, use the hose the minimum possible. That way you won’t pollute the water too much. It’s up to you again how to use this feature.

Like everything else in the game you have the last choice. But we think it will be a good idea to save the seas from our own pollution when cleaning up plastics.

We have also included a new post in IndieDB talking about all this if you want to get more info.

Have a nice day saving whales and dolphins!

Enjoying math while learning, an equation to solve

Spanish version here.

Back to school is coming, and the little ones of the house will return to their typical activities, including games. Basically we can divide them into the classics, from which the end is always announced without it coming, fortunately, and the new ones, which focus, above all, on the always attractive consoles that almost all children want. Consoles for children who, let’s not kid ourselves, enjoy a lot, and sometimes even more, parents.

It is important, it is fundamental, that children play. Obsessed with studies is tremendously negative, and excessive pressure on children to study only causes an adverse reaction. It’s not a good idea for them to spend the day playing the game, but let’s not forget: it’s not a good idea for them to spend the day playing football or any other activity. Everything has its time and quantity. Like everything else in life, they have to strike a balance.

And then they have to study. And the dreaded maths are a challenge, now, and always. Coming to school suffering because of the “math” class is a dangerous path for the intellectual development of young people. But there are solutions. Let’s go see him.

Save the seas “Speedboats” released

Math Classroom Challenge version 1.87 has now been released. This version, among other things, adds the “Speedboats”. They will appear randomly and from time to time carrying some plastics. It’s our mission to throw “Math energy” to the plastics to dissolve them. This will give points and new “Math Energy”.

Pursuit the speedboat with the helo (or with the drone, but this usually won’t work) and try to aim to the plastics that the speedboat is carrying.

As usual, cleaning these speedboats is not mandatory. The only critical operation is to clean the white dots with plastics marked on the radar. But are you going to leave that speedboats alone?

Be careful when you’re moving between points, speedboats like to complicate your journey.

We have also solved some minor problems and glitches with the game. Thank you!

“Save the seas” final version released

We’re happy to inform that the release version of “Save the seas” is now online for download. This is the new scenario for “Math Classroom Challenge”.

In this version we have added some important elements to the scenario. Now when breaking down the walls, debris and plastics will appear It’s up to you to clean that plastics, but it will give you more points. Besides, more whales and dolphins will be freed.

“M” will turn on/off music. “U” will clear the HUD.

There are also a new yellow dot, that indicates plastic that contains life inside. If you clean that plastic, marine life will be freed from inside.

Now the first white dot will appear randomly, not only in front of the player. Just the initial games will do this. The helo can fly higher.

The game will generate more freed whales and dolphins when cleaning the seas and breaking down the walls.

Some minor tweaks have been added to the game. And we’re working with the next version: underwater operations. Thank you for your support!

The objective of “Save the seas”

Spanish version here.

This Saturday 25th we present the final version of “Save the seas” in Steam, the new scenario of “Math Classroom Challenge“. Although the game is basically mathematics, in this scenario they play a secondary role, the main element being a fundamental message: the seas are our friends, and marine life our ally. We must take care of the seas and marine life, because our very existence depends on it.

Today, the seas are brutally depleted. Fishing is necessary, it is true, but it must be done in an organised and sustainable way. We cannot ignore that, by destroying the sea, we are destroying the future of life on Earth. We must understand that protecting the sea must be an absolute priority from any point of view.

That’s why we created “Save the seas”. Because we want to make the public aware of the importance of the seas for our existence. Some might say we’re driven by an economic motive. It’s not like that. And that proves that the price of the game is not a priority for us. We hope to cover expenses of course. But the goal is to convey a message of hope to all humanity: we can save the seas and oceans of the Earth.

To this end, the game poses several challenges, the main one being the cleanliness of the plastics. These materials accumulate in the sea, creating gigantic islands, destroying all forms of life and ecosystems. The game aims to teach people how to clean up the seas, but above all, to learn that we must act, and we must act now, to save the seas of our planet.

We want to create more scenarios like this. And we want to create an ecological awareness, with games that are not only educational, but also teach people to respect life and care for our world. That’s our dream. We hope to be able to carry it out. Thank you very much.
