Back in March, Kaplan, the huge learning company, announced that it was teaming with videogame developer and publisher Aspyr Media* to create Kaplan-branded interactive entertainment products and bring them to market. While most people think of Kaplan as a test prep company, the truth is, they are into all type of educational content and delivery. You should really check out all the neat things they are doing.
Anyway, the first educational game under the deal will be an engaging, visually dynamic and unconventional title that is rooted solidly in Kaplan’s SAT prep curriculum. The game will be available to play on the Nintendo® DS™, PC and Mac platforms. There aren't many details out currently but as soon as they become available, I'll let you know.
You can read some of the details in a press release at SAT* Prep Enters the Video Gaming World
Here is Aspyr Media's version of the press release Kaplan and Aspyr Team Up to Create Dynamic Videogames for Nintendo DS™, PC and Mac
*Recently, Aspyr Media received two awards for their work on Guitar Hero® III: Legends of Rock. No small pedigree for developing educational video games.
This is a video game company building an educational game...should be interesting.
