Big News from Nordic Game Week!


We are happy to announce that the Finland-based learning game studio Lightneer will sponsor Nordic Game Week 2017!

The company’s first game – Big Bang Legends – is a mobile game that integrates both casual and fun gameplay with educational content about particle physics. Lightneer was very excited about the Nordic Game Week and they are donating Big Band Legends themed merchandise to organizations participating in the Nordic Game Week Competition. The first 200 organizations to register for the competition will receive small prizes (stickers, reflectors etc.) to share with their patrons and TEN competition participants can win a huge bag of fun, including card games, board games, t-shirts, hoodies and more!

Big Bang Legends’s learning content includes basic hierarchies of particle physics, culminating in an understanding of the Periodic Table of Elements. The content has been developed together with experts from CERN.

At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.

We are very excited to have Lightneer as a patron!

Details on the Nordic Game Week Competition will be announced in the following weeks!

At the moment, the game is available in Finnish, English and Slovak (you can change the language from the options), but support for Nordic languages is coming at some point. We will try to provide a native language infosheet of the competition. Here’s the FAQ page for the game:
