Making basic Physics fun for children, ex-Angry Birds team launch the coolest science learning game on planet in Singapore. 

Big Bang Legends – a science learning game on planet – is created by Angry Birds and Rovio veterans’s collaboration with the brains from CERN and Oxford. The first game by Finland-based learning game studio Lightneer, integrates both casual and fun gameplay with educational content about particle physics. The Game launches today in Singapore and is available for free download from Appstore.

Peter Vesterbacka, Co-Founder of Lightneer, says “Finland and Singapore are world leaders in education and technology, both top the global PISA scores, but with wholly different mindsets. It’s great to launch our first game in Singapore bringing the two leaders together.”

Big Bang Legends app is free to download. For a monthly subscription of S$1.49, users can go ad-free and gain access to exclusive video learning content tailor-made by expert professors from Oxford & CERN. Game levels consists of puzzles and mazes, various kinds of antimatter monsters and collectable rewards. The periodic table becomes familiar when collecting and upgrading all 118 unique characters with special superpowers, and by playing, teach the element names and symbols.

Lauri Järvilehto, CEO of Lightneer says: “We want to make the playful and inclusive Finnish model accessible to everybody in the world to get great learning results through fun learning.” “Five years ago we’d joke that one day we’ll teach quantum physics to five-year-olds. Now we’re seeing five-year-olds playing Big Bang Legends and having conversations about quarks, protons and atoms. It’s pretty amazing.”

WORLD’S TOP GAME DEVELOPERS TEAMED UP WITH WORLD’S TOP SCIENTISTS

Lightneer’s team consists of Finland’s game industry veterans with backgrounds at companies like Rovio, Digital Chocolate and Gameloft. Lightneer’s advisory board includes global gaming and science legends such as Oxford Professor Marcus du Sautoy, CERN Head of Global Outreach Rolf Landua and former Mattel and Sega CEO Tom Kalinske.Rovio.

As the global lead market, the game launches in Singapore today. Student game workshops were led at schools, such as Stamford American International School (SAIS) whose students first beta-tested the concept yesterday. “Stamford American was thrilled to collaborate with Lightneer on Big Bang Legends, which is a fun and engaging game that we intend to use to introduce the concepts of physics and science to our students”, says Craig Kemp, Head of Education Technology at SAIS.
