Tinyplanet, a series of educational games to teach kids colors, shapes, numbers, letters and more through fun puzzle games. IN GREEK!

What is Tinyplanet?


There are many educational games that are made for preschoolers. Games that can be played on an internet browser, games that you can buy or download to your PC, apps for iphone, Android, etc. But when we searched for such games in languages other than English, particularly in Greek, we could not find many. In the past, Greek was one of the major languages of the world. That is why we started making a series of games in our own language, Greek. One of the reasons we put the Tinyplanet project in Indiegogo is that it can be extended to other languages if there is interest from supporters.


Why Tinyplanet?


As parents of toddlers, we quickly realized that the children already know how to use the mouse and the computer even before we show them how. The major deficiencies of the games we found as a result of our search are related to language and the teaching methods used (if used at all). Few applications are written for children who speak Greek, either as mother language, or as a foreign language. Also most games are designed to keep children busy and distract them like a babysitter. In fact, apart from using the computer, the application may use many teaching tools that will make the child develop interest in learning, for example colors, shapes, letters, numbers etc. So we decided to create this series of games through which children can learn by playing games based on a choice of exciting topics.


The Games


Tinyplanet is a series of games designed to help toddlers come in contact with basic knowledge of preschoolers. We use a nearly consistent set of games for each subject so the child is focused on understanding the topic and not the way the game is played. The groups of games that we are preparing or have built are:

  • card Game - The topic is presented in a series of cards. The child has to choose the right topic every time,
  • the Memory Game - A favorite for many children, The Memory Game helps reinforce the topics, while also developing a child's memory,
  • matching - This is an extension of The Memory Game except that instead of having all the cards hidden and matching identical cards, the children will match related cards. For example matching the color red with a red car,
  • puzzle - This game allows children to put together puzzles related to the topics provided,
  • complete the Pattern - This game challenges children to complete a pattern of cards from a set of available cards.

Many more games could be added after hearing your suggestions.


The Topics


Each topic will be presented from a game series like the one we described above. The topics currently planned are:

  • colors,
  • shapes,
  • numbers,
  • letters,
  • animals.

Many more games could be added after hearing your suggestions.


Current Progress


We currently have built a "game machine" for the card games and the memory games. Games "Complete the Pattern" and "Matching" are under development and will soon be ready for testing. The graphics of the game are originals and designed exclusively for the Tinyplanet series. We have already made some graphics for cards that can be used for several of the topics.


Getting to a Live Product


Our plan is that the final product will consist of a series of games designed in Flash. Everyone will be able play them for free at Tinyplanet.gr. In order to release tinyplanet we have to:

  • finish the two types of games that have not been finished,
  • build the puzzle game,
  • design graphics for most of the topics,
  • enrich the graphics that have been made to test the "game engine",
  • record sound (voice) for the games,
  • find music that fits with the concept of the game,
  • build the site Tinyplanet.gr to present games.

With the necessary funding we plan to publish the site with the first games in Μarch 2013.


Expansion ideas


Tinyplanet is a series of games. Some of them could be transferred to iphone, ipad or android. With additional funding we could translate Tinyplanet in other languages that lack preschool games. To implement such an expansion we need help from friends who speak these languages and can provide us with the corresponding material (voice and text).
