Hippocamp Studios is a Long Island based digital game studio that aims to provide educational and thought-provoking games to educators and individual consumers. Our games are used to teach and mentally engage players while still remaining entertaining.
Hippocamp is named after the hippocampi, the parts of the brain associated with consolidation of new memories, emotional responses, navigation, and spatial orientation. This reference seemed appropriate for the game company’s name because our games will require player’s to use their hippocampi extensively during play.
In a society where gaming is becoming more prevalent for all ages, it is important to offer games that are socially responsible. The game industry is flooded with games that use very little cognitive processes. Hippocamp’s games will be used to teach and mentally engage players while remaining entertaining. Game ideas will be generated based on research into current curriculum standards, specific client requests, and team discussion sessions.
