Description
A thousand years ago, the Objiwe people moved across the continent – and nobody knows exactly why.

So begins Fish Lake, a game from 7 Generation Games where math matters to survival. We’ve created an engaging 3D virtual world where players learn math and social studies within the context of the game.

What motivated the Ojibwe to journey into the unknown? Some believe it was because they were running out of food. But, how would they have known? Well, they would have noticed a change in the amount of fish available and measured it through observations and calculations. In other words, they would have used math.

Fish Lake focuses on fractions (including word problems) and teaches Objibwe culture. Watch out for the poisonous snakes! Make your way down the rapids. Find enough food for your village’s survival. Build a Red River cart. Figure out “what’s fair.” Who knew you could get this excited about fractions. Grades 4 and up. Mac and PC.

At 7 Generation Games, we're making games that make you smarter. And seriously, who doesn't want to be smarter?

Educational and cultural. Sounds like a good game for the young

I think this looks like a great educational game. Keep in mind the graphics need to be compatible with school computers. I think kids would have a lot of fun learning with this game.

I support this game, looks like a fun learning experience! I like math as well. Maybe if more Teachers used methods like this, then more of our kids would excel in Math.

This game looks pretty boring next to whats out now , as far as fun games ,yet I support this game completely. Good job. We could all use more of this. Please keep up the good work. This is why Greenlight is amazing.

Ugly. There are far less graphically intensive games that actually look decent thanks to some art direction. Those characters are firmly in the uncanny valley.

This is why Greenlight is a joke...

I notice a lot of complaints concerning graphics. I would not heed these too closely. If the goal is to be brought in to public schools eventually, then the dated nature of their machines should be kept in mind. My primary advice would be to not set your graphical requirements to ever exceed that of other popular educational games, such as Kerbal Space Program, which, while better looking than this game currently, is not what anyone would call a particularly beautiful or graphics intensive game. No matter how educational your game, if it grows to the point that most schools can not handle it on their computers then the game will not get used. Beyond that, my personal review is that I tried this with my niece, Natalie, and she quite enjoyed it and often speaks about it. She's got a Wii-U competing for her attention too, to give you an idea of the impact of the game on her. I think this game has potential to be the next Oregon Trail to future generations if it continues its growth.

This game is made to help educate not to be the best graphics ever. The best graphics wont make you learn more. Hope the game gets greenlit.
