Company and Mission
Who Are We?
Collide-O-Scope Edutainment, a small game development company with a big goal: to create games that do more than simply entertain or pass time; games that teach, that reach, and that heal. We want to stimulate your brain, encourage meaningful conversations, and address the deeper areas and applications of gaming. I (Kevin Elliott) started the business, and my wife, siblings, and parents have helped me test and develop the games and books. I have a background and education in psychology, counseling, and family therapy, and apply what I've learned through that to the games I make. One of the most interesting things I've learned over the years is that, while games can be a distraction, the RIGHT games can be the best teaching tools, especially for children with learning difficulties (e.g., ADHD, Autism Spectrum, Dyslexia). Thus, edutainment.
What is Edutainment?
Edutainment is the blending of Education and Entertainment which typically emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning. It is a method of teaching through fun, engaging, interactive games and activities. We know how big of an impact edutainment can have - students, teachers, and psychologists see how it changes education for the better. Schooling environments such as homeschooling and gameschooling are exactly where these types of products are must useful. There is a trend towards edutainment in the game industry right now. We would like to join with others on this quest and produce games that help families, students, churches, youth organizations, and others to take their gaming experiences to a higher level.
