Zoombinis Could Get A Modern Rework

Briefly: The edutainment classic and staple of many childhoods Zoombinis could get a modern rework, if this Kickstarter has anything to do with it. Help making learning (by solving pizza-based puzzles) fun again!


    Fleens? You're not Fleens.

    Hmph, whatever you are. MAKE ME A PIZZA.

    Wooooo! Zoombinis!

    I was like the only kid in class who could figure out how to do the pizza. Everybody else just kept doing random toppings until they died.

    Still have it around somewhere, best game ever.

    After looking properly at the Kickstarter, it's a little sad to see some of the changes in the art style but I get that the old style probably wouldn't go down too well these days. The updated version looks a lot more like a modern tablet game (which is what they're aiming for).
    The Pizza Trolls and the Fleens still look great anyway.

    Boy. This game. I still remember the puzzle trying to get them all across the river. Broderbund sure knew how to make a good educational game (along with the Magic Schoolbus and Carmen Santiego people).

    Absolute sucker for these games as a kid.
    I would love to have more games like this (Gizmos and Gadgets, Zoombini's 2, the Incredible machine and other edu-puzzlers) getting the same treatment - developed in Unity so that they can be enjoyed all over again in better detail (and maybe even add some additional content).

    Hell yes!
    I'm normally very careful and skeptical about Kickstarter these days, but with this I immediately threw money at my screen ...Then went and backed through the actual website. I suppose I should read the details at some point. Why does this excite me so much?
