Description

pySioGame is a set of grid based educational activities for young children.
The application started as author's programing sandbox in early days of stepping into python world - but later improved and transformed into an educational application. While it is not a programming piece of art children under 10 might find it useful - and hopefully won't complain about badly written code :) - as long as it works and more than likely it does.

The application includes some basic activities in maths, reading, memory, etc. More activities are being developed but graphic design is not the strongest of author's skills which quite significantly limits the possibilities - cutting edge graphics are not to be expected. Most of the nice graphics used in the game were created by talented people who contributed their works to openclipart.org, www.art4apps.org and other sites - thanks to all of them.

The application is playable (hopefully). Testing was limited to a couple of PCs running Ubuntu and Windows (8 and XP) + some bug reports from users. It runs from source as long as python and pygame are installed. Now also available as Windows executable, so no need to install any other software (except for espeak). Not tested on any other Operating Systems yet (anyone, any luck on Mac?).

Requirements (to run from source):
    - python 2.7+
    - python-pygame
    - espeak (optional but very useful)

The app supports multiple languages - currently available ones: Catalan, English, Finnish, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian. Thanks to all who submitted and maintain the translations. Please contact the author if you would like to help translating this application to any other language or to improve (make more fun) any of the completed translations. The English version would definitely benefit from some beautification by native speaker, anyone interested?

Thanks to Miriam Ruiz who did the hard work and created the deb and ppa as well as made the effort to submit it to Debian and Ubuntu repositories.

Nice a game, very expensive, I like me :). There are very few educational games.
