Have problems pronouncing the title of this game? It hardly rolls off the tongue, does it? Well believe it or not, KiPulKai: The Secret of the KiBoa is aimed at the younger generation of gamers and is geared towards stimulating their intelligence via various analytical problem-solving exercises. This is no ordinary "Barney Goes to School" style game, however, for KiPulKai presents a fully rendered mystical world to explore, as well as a wide range of fantastical creatures with which to interact.

As the game begins, the player arrives in the middle of a peaceful village where the KiPulKai live. It’s not long before one or two pretty big problems arise, affecting life there. The fruit trees are dying, the PiPulGoe have disappeared and now old BoaDuBoa's illness is causing concern (Try saying that after six pints of the landlord's finest!). As legend has it, only small earthlings can solve these problems, so you know what you've got to do kids…

The quests are based around real-world themes such as pollution, famine, disease, social classes and power struggles. Players can solve each problem by choosing one of many possible options and, in doing so, will come to understand that (like in the real world) the smallest action can make a huge difference. Along the way, players also learn about the importance of friendship, fidelity, honesty and peace.

The first of many titles to be set in the KiPulKai universe, The Secret of the KiBoa will benefit from a multiplayer option, allowing children to share their adventures with friends. As well as assisting with the development of children's imaginations, communication skills and social awareness, the game also provides a safe place for on-line interaction.
