Mia 2 On The Way
4:56 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Simon and Schuster has announced another edutainment title for Mac and PC; luckily, this one does not involve the word 'panty' in any way (referring of course to their universally panned title Panty Raider.) Instead, this "rollicking 3D adventure" involves the adventures of Mia Mouse as she solves science-based puzzles (with your child's help, of course). Here are more details from the press release:

Help! Mia Mouse got caught in a big flood storm that whisked away her
mother's hat that she had loaned her; and to make matters worse, the bad
guy, Romaine Rat, has found the hat and is now wearing it as his
own. Hopefully the player can help Mia earn enough "sparklies" to buy it
back from him! Thus begins a rollicking 3D adventure through a series of
logic challenges and science activities in Mia 2: Romaine's New Hat, the
second title in Kutoka Interactive's CD-ROM learning adventure series
starring the most endearing mice since Disney's Cinderella.

As well as having eight full-featured science activities at four different
levels of difficulty, Mia 2: Romaine's New Hat has many scientific
challenges to tackle within Mia's adventure.

As luck might have it, the journey back home has many challenges that will
help the player and Mia learn about science, while hopefully winning enough
sparklies to replace the hat. And, of course, whenever there are sparklies
to be found, you can be sure that Romaine the rat is never far away. Once
he spots Mia with sparklies he will try his best to get them away from her.

With the help of the player and the new friends Mia makes on her way, Mia
will hopefully be home in time for dinner and with her mother's hat!

Mia 2: Romaine's New Hat will be compatible with both PC and Macintosh
platforms and is scheduled to ship in August, 2000. This extraordinary
new edutainment title targeted at children 5 to 11 that combines an
involving story, adventure and some serious learning into two fun packed

Watch for this title in August; more details should be available soon from the Simon and Schuster Interactive web site.
