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.

Math Classroom Challenge 1.85: the airplane

In version 1.85 we have added an airplane to the “Save the seas” scenario. This airplane throws plastics to the sea. The radar indicates the presence of the airplane with a black spot. These plastics are indicated by a red spot.

Collecting the plastics dropped by the airplane gives more points than the standard plastics, but you must finish the standard plastics indicated with a buoy and a white dot in the radar in order to finish the game.

We have also solved some minor glitches, and added some enhancements to the game. Thank you!

“Save the seas” is here. Now you can save the oceans

We are happy to inform that Math Classroom Challenge Version 1.80 is here!

This version includes the new Scenery “Save the seas”, I you can bet is quite different from the others. Here you’ll have to clean the seas and oceans by using “Math Energy”, a special compound that destroys plastics in the sea.

How do you get this Math Energy? We explain it here, with the manual and a videotutorial. Thank you!

Whale freed, a test for version 1.80

This is an image of the tests we are doing on the behaviour of the whales when we release them, so that they can return to the open sea. Soon we will show a short video explaining the mechanics of the game, where the player will clean the seas to save the whales and dolphins, as well as the removal of walls that impede the normal migratory flow of marine species.

This is the promotional image to inform about the development of Math Classroom Challenge V.1.80: Save the seas. Programming is going well after the main element of the game (helo and drone controls, views, interaction) are solved, and generation of debris and plastics are almost finished.

We’re now programming the whales and dolphins behavior. Thank you for your interest.
