Tyto Online is a quest-based, online role-playing game where you play as an evacuee from the recently-destroyed Earth. You’ve settled on the planet Ovo to study at Tyto Academy as you establish your new life. Explore and complete quests while learning real science concepts.
Right now, we have mainly content around ecology (aligned with middle and high school science standards) and will be completing the Ecology Module when we get the create-your-own ecosystem sandbox into Tyto Online. We'll continue to add features and content along with our early access users in a true co-development fashion, based on your close input and conversations. Our target is to have 3 complete modules with sandbox and emergent gameplay features, and a very smooth experience overall, before we leave early access. As we continue, our long-term goal is to have a massive MMORPG where you can learn across many subject areas as you play for years.

I am a biochemist, making games to teach the invisible bits of cell biology.
I really feel like I am on an adventure in this game. I love the interaction with the scientists... I was quickly involved in an investigation of plant health that feels like a real experiment, that honestly makes me feel like I am back in the lab.
This game is a beautiful fusion of a big beautiful world and a bunch of real world kinds of problems to solve. And you get your own apartment with a crazy space view.
The graphics have lately been lowered in resolution so that the game plays on Chromebooks. However, this game is under development by a fantastic team and soon the graphics will be improved for people on computers that can handle it.
If you teach biology or introduction to science I really recommend this game!
