Video Games for Kids (2015)
The video games of the Calli Clever-series where made for the website Lernspaß für Kinder, a website suited for children from the age of 6-12. While browsing through the various categories, the kids can learn about nature, politics and history with fun games waiting as a reward. Though the games are not meant to be educational in the first place, their settings match with the actual categories of the website, thus it’s easy for the kids to transfer their newly aquired knowledge and hop into the imaginary worlds of mascot Calli Clever.
