We’re Human Heroes, a small start-up games studio based in the heart of London with dedicated in-house educational experts that work with children throughout schools in the UK, with our goal of empowering children to discover new heroes throughout history to look up to.
With each Human Hero, we picked a suitable learning topic from the curriculum and turn it into a game. We broke it down to a granular level and applied various scaffolding techniques to increase or decrease difficulty in real-time. When kids are challenged, the hero will come to their assistance with instant verbal and visual aids, ensuring kids of all abilities succeed in finishing the game and master each learning area.
All Human Heroes have managed to achieve incredible feats from a very young age because they didn’t restrict themselves to the conventional view of what was intellectually age appropriate. Children are known to be better than grown-ups in learning new languages or riding a bicycle; why not let our heroes teach them about relativity, radioactivity or evolution?
Our animated 3D characters will share with players stories from their lives, careers and what inspired them to achieve their discoveries. They will expose their human side and explain the necessity of working hard and persevering to lead successful and happy lives. It’s never previously been possible for kids to get up close and personal to these intellectual champions.
We have an entire pipeline of human heroes in different STEM fields and humanities coming soon including Isaac Newton, Mozart, Ada Lovelace, Aristotle, Jane Austen and dozens of other influential characters from throughout the centuries who have shaped the way we live and think today, with Leonardo Da Vinci being our next human hero!
