‘Variant: Limits’ is Like Myst for Calculus Students – Explore a 3D World, Solve Puzzles with Calculus! | @Triseum

This. Looks. Amazing!

Triseum have announced a “third-person exploration game based on calculus” called Variant. While the gameplay is clearly different from Myst (3rd person perspective, rotational 3D world), the trailer (below) does remind me of moments from that breakthrough game, solving puzzles to advance through a curious world – how did this architecture get here? Who built this place? Who maintains these grounds? And yeah, you get to learn calculus along the way!

 
Watch the complete trailer:

Triseum are accepting applications from “selected institutions and educators” for “a sponsored pilot in spring 2017 to bring the ultimate in game-based learning experiences to your calculus students.” If you’re interested you can read more and apply for the pilot here – and I do hope this gets released to the general public, and I’m sure I’m not the only one interested in re-learning calculus knowledge through immersive gameplay!

  1. If you have to invent a world where calculus matters, why would you expect a student to care about it in ours?
