“Fireflies carry the light from the stars” – ancient legend.
Learning can be different. Kiwaka is a game where you will learn about stars and constellations in an entertaining way. Play it in the dark for a more delightful visual experience.
The adventure begins in Kiwaka, a small place in the African jungle (it actually exists!) where the strangest creatures live. They want to discover the night sky and your goal is to catch fireflies to help them - each firefly will light one of the stars in the sky.
As the fireflies bring light to the constellations they reveal their hidden mysteries and ancient myths.
Do you know the story of Cassiopeia, the vain Queen of Ethiopia? Or the myth of Perseus and how he killed Medusa who turned all who gazed upon her to stone? Have you heard of Orion, the great hunter, and his enemy, the giant Scorpion?… The night sky is full of magical stories and Kiwaka will unveil them for you.
Kiwaka was developed with the collaboration of the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and other leading scientific organizations to display over 120 stunning space images, as well as external links so you can explore the cosmos further. Kiwaka also includes several videos to help you locate important stars and constellations in the sky.
Designed for children and enjoyed by all ages, Kiwaka is a magical learning adventure. Astronomy has never been so engaging!
You can also enjoy our endearing Book app – Kiwaka Story – which tells the tale of the characters in the game and follows these friends in their quest to light the stars in the sky and unveil the ancient mysteries of the constellations (narrated by Diogo Morgado - in the English and Portuguese editions - who played the role of Jesus in the epic film “Son of God”).
