Stories + Games + Education

The Deskplorers “Jump in a Book” series: a unique interactive experience  combining stories and games,  with real educational values.

Kids love nice stories, with heroes and emotions! But in front on the TV they don’t interact…

Kids love to play fun video-games, but many games don’t bring the educational value parents would hope for.

Combining Stories, Games and Education has been at the core foundation of our game design.

Read the Story, Play the Mini-Games, Unlock the Chapters!

Read the Story
There are 6 chapters per episode

Each episode contains more than 200 images and 6 animations, background music and sound effects, providing a rich entertaining experience for the kids. The dialogs are easy to read with or without the parents help. Each episode is a full story, divided into 6 chapters.

At the end of a chapter, The Deskplorers will need help! They won’t be able to go any further until the player finds an object to unlock the chapter and continue with the story!

Find the right objects to help the Deskplorers

Browse the catalog and read the descriptions… There are many more objects than you need and you have to find the right one. If you think an object is right for the current chapter, cut it out, drag it to the box on the left, and go back to the story to see if you chose the right object!

But, to cut an object, you need points! And to win points, you need to play the mini-games!

Play the mini-games
Win points!

There are 3 mini-games to choose from. You can play them in an “easy” mode or “normal” mode (the normal mode is more difficult, but offers more points when you win !-). Each game session is limited to 1 minute, but you can play as many times as you want!

5 mini-games available, 2 difficulty levels per mini-game.
