Mia 2: Romaine's New Hat Ships
12:18 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

French edutainment software maker Kutoka Interactive has announced that their latest title, Mia 2: Romaine's New Hat is now shipping. This multimedia adventure is aimed at children 5 to 11, and teaches science knowledge as well as problem-solving. Here is an excerpt from the press release:

Young scientists rejoice! Mia, the skateboarding mouse who first burst on the edutainment scene last year in a lively learning adventure, today returns in Mia 2: Romaine's New Hat. With all the fun activities along the way in Mia 2, children won't believe that they're "learning" all about science.


Designed for children 5 to 11, Mia 2 mixes an engaging storyline with a variety of science activities addressing subject matter ranging from the solar system, the human body and the weather to the classification, habitats and eating habits of animals. The two-CD title also features over a dozen endearing characters rendered in feature film-quality animation, an outstanding sound track and vivid scenery seen magically from the perspective of a mouse. Mia also has the unusual ability to move anywhere on the computer screen where the child points the computer mouse, giving players complete control over the main character.


The story begins when, without permission, Mia wears her mother's fancy new hat and goes to play on the roof of the house where she lives. An unexpected rainstorm washes Mia down the drainpipe. She escapes, but the hat is swept into the sewer, where it is grabbed by the evil rat Romaine and his cousins. Mia must pick herself up, retrieve the lost hat, and then find her way home.

This game is a hybrid release, and will run on any iMac or greater system. Visit the Kutoka web site for more details.
