Animal Album! - Pokemon style RPG with real animals for Kickstarter funding

Hello there! Now this is not a review this time! (I know it's all I have done so far) "WHAT?!-" I hear you scream at me, scaring my dog "NOT A REVIEW?! Well then what IS it?" I'll tell you what it is! It's just me telling you about a game. The game is called "Animal Album!" by Sjors Jansen and it's about a robot who seems to be documenting every animal he comes across! Though this is done by solving puzzles/quizzes and as such could be considered an educational game. The developer describes it as a Pokemon Style RPG with real animals and without the fighting and is up for funding through Kickstarter with a €18,000 goal!

See for yourself if you'll like it or not!

As for me and my quick demo play through, (I personally got almost every quiz question wrong since I know nothing about animals...)

  1. Thanks for trying out the game David!
    I'm definitely trying to combine educational stuff with it.

    The idea behind it is to turn the typical RPG-Grind into something useful. I've played so many rpgs and a lot of the time you're just mashing the same button, selecting fight over and over again. And that felt like I was wasting my time. So I thought why not change it so you at least learn something from each encounter?

    So then it clicked when I remembered that letter from a Professor at Cambridge University.

    It's not all just text though, there's currently 4 ways to figure out what animal you're dealing with. A bit like the "Who's that Pokemon?"-intermissions from the cartoons. And there's likely to be more when I'm done. First and foremost the game relies on good level design though.
