Hyperthought has recently launched Lingo Legend, a new gaming platform dedicated to helping users polish their language skills and learn ones. The flagship game on this platform is Yorthwood, which infuses the card-battling RPG genre with learning languages.
Yorthwood’s simplest description is “fight monsters and learn words”. It involves players building a deck of heroes that must battle monsters in a vibrant yet scary world. How does language come into all this? Players may collect all sorts of cards but the only way to use them is by completing language challenges. In combat situations, ability cards can only be drawn after answering language questions correctly.
Gameplay has been designed in a way that will keep providing the user with tests. Players will have to plan in advance and utilize tactics to defeat enemies who have varied strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, everyone can take part in other quests like collecting resources and creating weapons. Yorthwood also has an immersive storyline that is bound to keep players hooked with its peculiar characters and fun storylines. The best part is, users will also be learning a new language alongside this, making it the perfect combination.
Darien Morris, Co-Founder of Hyperthought Games, said: “We’re super excited for people to have the ability to play a game they love while learning a language and see the effect that has on their consistency and progress. Integrating learning into video games has so much potential and we can’t wait for people to start seeing those benefits with Lingo Legend. We’ve really only scratched the surface of what is to come.”
On top of all this, Lingo Legend will feature monthly challenges, leaderboards, and a ranking system that will allow for competition between all players. Hyperthought also plans to add numerous other games to their platform, to give everyone a wonderful experience while they learn their favourite language.
