Turmali is an exciting new digital game for children aged 6-13 with accompanying story books. The online game and downloadable e-books combine to create a world of adventure for children.
Turmali is a magical world in a distant galaxy, made up of seven mystical, floating lands. It’s been invaded by dangerous aliens called Light Killers and it needs to be saved. What’s more, it’s going to be saved by a group of international children known as the GoMadKids who come together to fulfil a team enterprise – saving this beautiful world and its colourful array of inhabitants from destruction.
During the course of the game, players will have the opportunity to ‘chat’ with each other in restricted and safe ‘chatrooms’. Their words will be translated instantaneously as they communicate with other children from around the world.
The Turmali game also offers comic-strip extracts from the e-books, giving a small taster of what is to come in the stories. By providing these snippets, it’s hoped that players will be enticed to enjoy the e-books and become avid readers. Players will also earn extra points in the game for being able to answer questions about the e-books, again encouraging children to read. Our aim is not only to promote reading for enjoyment, but to develop children’s understanding of different cultures through the fictitious characters of the GoMadKids.
