"appropriate for all ages"
Stories with this maturity level will not, by design, have any potentially objectionable content. An example of a type story with this rating would be a quiz on mathematics.
A compilation of some little known facts about the solar system, as well as the debunking of a few myths.

In addition to the scientific explanations, there's a small story dramatizing it all.

Hopefully young readers will find this fun as well as educational. :)

(Might not be the greatest story ever written, but consider this: it got me 200 points.)

Player Comments

The description is quite accurate. These are little-known facts about the solar system. This game offers a hallucination about astronomy, in an almost stream-of-consciousness style.

Kind of hilarious. I started out with a skeptical expression on my face, which quickly grew into laughter, and then a few replays to see how outrageous I could make these lessons. I think the biggest thing I learned from this game is something I can use as a teacher: try to say the most ridiculous thing I can with as straight a face as I can and see who notices first.

This game is best played immediately after reading fifty other much worse edutainment games so that you get what it is satirizing--even the tone of the narrator satirizes the sound of some of the (unintentionally) hilarious edutainment games that are hovering down in the 2's and 3's of this category.

I'm not sure what that was but it was good, I think.

Wow. That was NOT what I was expecting. Down to business, I thought this story was highly entertaining, and humorous. At first, I wasn't sure whether or not you were serious about all of this, as your writing sticks with your 'facts', portraying them as 'REAL' science. After a little bit, however, I realized you were more than likely bored and came up with something off the top of your head, then made a story about it.

Now, I've never heard anything about these 'World Turtles', so I'm unsure as to whether or not that's an actual conspiracy, but if not, then I can imagine a lot of people discovering this and making a cult following out of this. It'll be the next big religion. I can see that you put some thought into this, as it's not ambiguous, concluding there are some interesting, er... points you bring up. What I'm trying to say is; you got your point acrossed, and I could clearly understand what you were saying in each page.

Now, if I'm right, this is your fourth Storygame, and I honestly love your writing. It's filled with subtle sarcasm, and the writing's better than most. I'm eager to see what else you cook up.

I learned more about the planet and our solar system then what I learned when I was a little, innocent child.

Thank you for giving me a true understanding of the world and what it really is. You were right I didn't learn any of this in school, likely due to the governments evil conspiracy to end the world.

What? How can you be so sure we are inside these space turtles?

I have taken your lesson to heart many years ago and found for myself that the Earth, indeed, is flat. I mean horizons are flat. And I mean I trust my observations because I, myself, am an infallible, true-blooded skeptic.

Now we, as the great people we are, may question my observations, and I'll answer it right now. My observations are the best. They are really, really, good. Nothing comes close to my observations. Hundreds of people say that my observations are the best. Even my 3rd grade teacher said my observations are really, really good. And she's the best 3rd grade teacher out there in this blessed country. And with my observations, I will make this world great again. It will be amazing. Believe me.

And my great people, and they really are amazing, trust me, my great people they told me this just now. They told me that many things in this story check out. Yes! Can you believe that ladies and gentlemen? We are actually inside a space turtle, it's just that it's a Cantor's Giant Softshell Turtle. Truly amazing thing, isn't it. The best thing there is. Also the work my people do. See, this turtle is amazing, it truly is, and many great people told me that this turtle is flat. Just like the Earth. See how the two connect? Amazing work, my people. I work very hard to get this information to you.

I need to cut this review short, the best review there is. There are some more FAKE NEWS which needs to be addressed. Remember, FAKE NEWS is worse than FAKE SCIENCE. Trust me. Both are not good things.

Jesus I though that parrot was feeding naked testicles.

I like how you incorporated storytelling in the space educatiement instead of just spewing random facts. Also how you added in the definitions as someone as myself would have been too lazy to take seconds do it myself. Really good edition to the edutainment section for someone who wants something short and sweet involving space.
