questionaut

A couple weeks ago, I posted on the exquisite free flash game, Samorost. To my great pleasure, the boys at Amanita Design recently teamed up with the BBC to produce a short, educational adventure game of similar ilk. It's called Questionaut, and again, the endearing, unique world you explore makes this more an interactive piece of art than a mere game. The simple point-and-click puzzles are paired with educational questions (on writing, mathematics, and science), geared to your average British 11-year old level. Unfortunately, you can't save in progress so make sure you reserve around 30 minutes of free time to play through the game and absorb the delightful soundtrack. Some screenshots to tempt you:
