Kids play by making up stories. They'll be the hero fighting a villain. To our eyes they are at the living hall. But in their minds, they are in a different world. This game is designed to celebrate kids' borderless imagination. They will learn through stories, imagined by them.
Screentime is bad for kids. But it has many good sides when designed properly. We want to make sure our game will not make kids addicted to it.
So we decided from early on StoryTime will not have reward system built in to it.
There are no stars to collect, no points to gain. Instead kids are rewarded through the joy of discovery
Kids are explorer by nature. Unlike us, they don't need instructions on how to do things. They learn by doing, mistakes after mistakes.
As such, we take advantage of this behaviour and design StroyTime to give responsive feedback. Each interactions will give kids clue on what to do without spoon feeding them.
This helps them learn through exploration which they are already an expert.
Exploration leeds to discovery. This is our substitute to rewards system that many other game use.
Kids rarely needs rewards. They do things because it's fun for them. They like to challenge themselves. They joy is in the process of discovery.
As we built our game for exploration, kids will continuously discover new things in StoryTime. The game will be updated regularly with new content to be discovered.
We develop StoryTime as a better screentime alternative for kids. This means the game design will not encourage kids to keep playing for a long period of time.
This can be easily achieve by not including the reward system like daily rewards, stars and streaks to maintain. Kids can play when they want to and stop when the feel like it.
We use Kurikulum Standard Prasekolah Kebangsaan (KSPK) by Ministry of Education Malaysia as one of our main reference point. We want to make sure the content has value that is based on learning objective recommended by MOE.
Did we mentioned we work closely with preschool teachers since 1987 to help us publish work-books to be use in kindergarten?
Here are some of the topics that we are developing now. We plan to include hundreds more in the future.
