PROXIMA CENTAURI GAMES RELEASES ROCKET RANGERS PRESCHOOL

Lafayette, CO, January 12, 2013 - Proxima Centauri Games this month has launched an edutainment game called Rocket Rangers Preschool for Android on Google Play. Plans are under way to make the product rapidly available on the Amazon app store and on iTunes as well.

Rocket Rangers Preschool is a space-themed children's educational game intended for an audience aged two to six years. The product is driven by voice instructions, and is designed to be both completely safe for unattended use, and child-friendly. It consists of a series of small, self-paced skill-building activities that entertain youngsters while allowing them to practice working with shapes, letters, colors and numbers. The product also contains simple puzzles and a memory matching game, along with a creative activity involving building an animated toy solar system.

The game also includes references to more advanced science information. Lead Developer Steve Hartmeyer remarked, "Children are smarter than we often give them credit for. By just embedding more advanced stuff here and there informally in this and other games, the idea is that when the kids encounter these things in school or by reading later on, they already have some sense of familiarity, which hopefully encourages better learning." Rocket Rangers Preschool is intended to be the first in what is eventually expected to become a series of space-themed edutainment products by Proxima Centauri Games.

UPDATE: Rocket Rangers Preschool became available on the Amazon Android app store on 24 January 2013.
