Haven't bought or played this yet, but I've always loved the idea of exploring teaching through games, in particular chemistry. I tried to put together my own game systems around chemistry a few times but haven't had success, so I'm excited to see how you went about it. Will definitely be picking this one up :)
ChemCaper™: Act I - Petticles in Peril
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Learn Chemistry Through Play
ChemCaper brings out the fun in Chemistry and takes the dread out of learning.
What People Say
“Instead of trying to teach Chemistry, ChemCaper reinforces concepts, associating them with characters and minigames. It’s a game anyone who has a strong interest in Chemistry or educational games should pick up.”
- Tof Eklund, Writer of Pocket Tactics, a Videogames Critic Site
“ChemCaper is a full-fledged, fantasy RPG designed to get children excited to learn Chemistry that even grown-ups will love. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a fun supplement to traditional lessons.”
- Camila Amanda, Writer of Geeks with Juniors, an Educational App Review Blog
Everyone Loves Games
ChemCaper makes full educational use of a medium that everyone loves and delivers Chemistry with fun in mind.
Implicit Learning Reduces Resistance
Learning and studying have a bad reputation among students. ChemCaper rebuilds the love of learning in a ninja-like fashion. The aim is for players to have "Hey, I know this!" moments.
Immersive Learning Sticks Longer
ChemCaper players report that they remember 90% of the chemistry concepts learnt in the game 6 months after playing it for the first time.

True that! Chemistry is the most difficult subject to begin with. We have been through a lot of discussion to make sense of the learning outcomes. It is no doubt the biggest challenge for game design when it is education related. Thanks for showing interest! Your response means a lot to us. =)
