A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of playing Upper One Games’ Never Alone, or Kisima Injitchuna. It was a relatively simple puzzle-platformer game that on the merits of gameplay doesn’t do anything too drastic from the norm. However, what the game did do incredibly well was teach me something new.
Armed with M-4 automatic rifles, swathed in body armor and combat fatigues, the five man U.S. Special Forces Airborne entry team stacks up outside the entrance to the house.
I've seen plenty of edumacational games and I'm always delighted to explore how they surreptitiously teach people as they play a game. But this is the first time I've played a edu-pinbal game.
