What is The Counting Kingdom?

The Counting Kingdom is an educational game that encourages players to practice their addition skills in a playful and engaging way.  Kids play as the Apprentice, a brave young wizard who must save the kingdom from an invading horde of monsters.  Players will journey throughout the kingdom, building their math skills as they cast magical spells to defend against the monsters and rescue all the castles.

What makes it special?

Developed in close collaboration with teachers, parents and kids,  The Counting Kingdom  gives kids an educational game that is adventurous, strategic, and genuinely fun.

Key Features

  • Intuitive but deep gameplay
  • Repel monsters with magic by using addition and subtraction skills
  • Generative level design means there are multiple ways to solve the problem; kids are encouraged to engage with the math instead of simply looking a single solution
