**Please read the description before commenting 'this is NOT a game'. If you don't like educational stuff, this is not for you.**

This project was for a University assignment where the aim was to explain a complex idea using interactive visualisation. I went the sci-fi route and decided to talk about a much needed language enhancing invention, showing off how it could enhance language tutoring for those struggling to learn a new language.

I wan't really sure whether to classify this as a game or a movie as it's kind of in the middle, being just interactive enough to be considered somewhat a game, but static enough to not be called a movie. I think 'Tutorial' is the best explanation for this project, as it's the closest option available.

Changed some typos and added a pre-loader. It probably didn't need one with how small the file is, but it's not too much hassle.

Yes, it should be posted in the movie section. It isn't a game, it is an interactive movie. You think players aren't going to be disappointed because of the tags 'tutorial' and 'education'? You are the creative type; you can't see a way to make an educational game out of a tutorial??? You put a lot of work into this. Keep it in the wrong section for all I care, but the only thing that will do is bring a low rating for something you worked hard on. Here's an example of that: "I wanted a game, this isn't a game, automatic X/5."

if you have to explain in the game section that this is not a game, maybe you shouldn't post it to the game section. i know this site doesn't have a section for this but either include game elements or post it elsewhere. just an idea.

Are you saying you think this would be better suited for the Movie section? I don't understand how people are disappointed to find something that isn't a game after seeing this is tagged as being in the 'Tutorial' genre (something that isn't a game to begin with), and has the tag 'Education'.

Not really a game, but it is educational.

not a game...

Started up the game and immediately recognized the music from Kerbal Space Program. You don't appear to have given them any credit. I don't think that music is royalty free.

There's a link to the Author of both music tracks on the credits page. Here's the exact link to the music page on incompetech: http://incompetech.com/wordpress/2015/02/kerbal-space-program/ 'If you’re a space flight simulation kind of person AND an incompetech reader, you may have noticed the soundtrack from Kerbal Space Program uses music from here!'

The track was created at the end of 2012 by Kevin MacLeod, which was used by Squad in their game 'Kerbal Space Program' which released April the 27th 2015. Please don't post based upon what you 'think' without doing a little bit of research first.
