Monkey Labs is the first in a series of new educational video games that combine a motivating, intriguing story with popular 3D gameplay and educational games in which the player competes with in-game characters to solve various challenges.

In Monkey Labs you enter an abandoned science laboratory where something went horribly wrong. Monkeys are jumping around everywhere with a strange device attached to their head. As the story unfolds, you discover that your only chance to save the monkeys is beating them in a series of challenging math games. But beware! The monkeys quickly adapt to your math skills, and you'll have to improve yourself continuously if you want to have a shot at uncovering the mystery behind Monkey Labs.

Monkey Labs is unique in that it’s been constructed specifically to accompany classic textbooks and act as a game-companion throughout the school year. Unlike many games in this genre, the production values of Monkey Labs are the same as that for commercial “real” games, making it very appealing. Thanks to an extensive back-end tool, the game is highly customizable, allowing it to be easily adapted to courses for students between 7 and 14. Monkey labs features a learning engine which adapts to each student's skill level, making it perfect for exposing young students to individually tailored math exercises in a fun and motivating way. 




Monkey Labs is being bundled with math textbooks from Die Keure in Belgium and has been received very enthusiastically by the school community. It will soon be coming to other territories.
