The game will have 3 different worlds and lots of different levels!

On the first world the player is introduced to the musical notes, their names and sequence. This game also teaches a little bit about tempo.

On the second world the levels play with the ascending and descending sequence of the notes the player learned in the first world.

In the last world we gather all the knowledge acquired in the two previous worlds and transpose it to a musical staff. At each level the player slowly learns that reading a music staff is a lot easier than it looks like!

Chili Crab e as Notas Musicais is part of a group of games designed by Plug & Boom and a brazillian musical school, the Núcleo Villa Lobos de Educação Musical, especially to teach music to kids.

The game, that is planned to be released at early April (2015), will be available for Android and iOS. We still don’t have any information on how the distribution will work, or if the game will be free or not. All this decisions are now up to the Ministério das Comunicações but as soon as we have any news we will post it here on our blog.
