Small Planet Big Questions
Hi. “Small Planet Big Questions” is a unique quiz game that teaches you about the world’s religions while letting you build historic structures.
I was approached by a client who wants to spread knowledge of the world’s different religions and points of view, and in doing so promote a common understanding and respect. She is a Swiss woman of Dutch origin who was brought up in a strict Protestant Christian environment in the USA, a community founded by Dutch settlers. As a child, her world view opened up when her family moved to West Africa. She learned that there are many different religions and became intrigued by the different views on life. Later, she even became a pastor in the Presbyterian Church USA. When she and her husband adopted children from Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish and animist traditions she committed herself to teaching them about their spiritual heritage from a respectful standpoint. Now, she is convinced that teaching children and adults about the world’s religions, such as Hindu, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, the Baha’i Faith but also traditions such as Humanism can lead us beyond tolerance to acceptance of our neighbours and their traditions.
From the store description:
The stars of every tradition emit challenging questions. Each correct answer contributes to the assembly of a famous monument and the revelation of age-old wisdom. Completion of the 9th structure unlocks the last level and opens the way to yet another sphere… Play alone or with up to 5 players. Designed for ages 12 > 108.
The game explores the spiritual and cultural aspects of 9 broad traditions practiced in the world today: Bahá’í Faith, Buddhist Way, Christian Churches, Hindu Dharma, Humanist Traditions, Islam, Jewish Communities, Local Religions, Tao.
Concept and Aim Our goal is to further peace through innovative, entertaining and inspiring tools that are both respectful and non-proselytic. Jesse Venbrux, creator of ‘They Need To Be Fed’ and ‘Cheerfish’, developed the marvellous worlds of this new app, Jake Almond composed the transcendent sound track and Jeltje Gordon-Lennox is responsible for the concept and the content of the game.
