OULULAINEN HAVINA HYÖDYNTÄÄ UUTUUSPELISSÄÄN PUHEENTUNNISTUSTA

Puheentunnistusteknologiaa on hyödynnetty pelimaailmassa yllättävän vähän. Etenkään opetuspeleissä sitä ei ole juuri käytetty. Oululainen peliyritys Havina Productions kuitenkin yhdistää niin pelaamisen, puheentunnistusteknologian kuin kielten opiskelunkin.

”Puheentunnistustekniikka on viimein sillä tasolla, että pystymme tarjoamaan mahdollisuuden keskustelunomaiseen kielten oppimiseen verkko-oppimisympäristön avulla. Opiskelija pystyy harjoittelemaan vieraan kielen puhumista omassa rauhassa ja rohkaistua sujuvaksi kommunikoijaksi ohjelman avulla”, toimitusjohtaja Riitta Annala kertoo.

”Lisäksi opiskelijan motivoiminen opintojen jatkamiseen pelin keinoin on helppoa. Oman pistetilin kasvattaminen ja muiden oppijoiden kanssa kilpaileminen vie eteenpäin pelissä, ja oppiminen tulee sivutuotteena.”

Idea puheella ohjattavasta kielipelistä syntyi, kun IT-alan pyörteissä työttömiksi jääneet kielitieteilijät ja sovelluskehittäjät hakeutuivat yhdessä pelialan koulutukseen. Ensimmäinen ilmainen kokeiluversio pelistä on julkaistu osoitteessa www.havinaproductions.com. Verkkoympäristössä toimiva tuote on määrä lanseerata helmikuun alussa.

Tuotekehitystyötä tuetaan tällä viikolla alkavalla joukkorahoituskampanjalla Invesdorissa, joka on suoraan yksityisiltä henkilöiltä rahoitusta keräävä palvelu.

Havina Productions tähtää kielipelillään kotimaan markkinoiden lisäksi Aasiaan, jossa sekä pelillisen että digitaalisen opiskelun markkinat ovat voimakkaassa kasvussa. Tuoteidean tarpeellisuudesta ja kantavuudesta kertoo muun muassa se, että Havina on yksi Oulun Yrityskiihdyttämöön valituista seitsemästä startup-yrityksestä. Se myös voitti oman sarjansa Midnight Pitch Fest -startup-tapahtumassa Oulussa viime elokuussa.

Share on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInEmail a friend

With over 100 million downloads we're dedicated to improve the game in the future.

Kempele, Finland (PRWEB) October 24, 2013

Fingersoft is proud to announce that in just twelve months its hit game, Hill Climb Racing, has racked up 100 million downloads.
Hill Climb Racing, the first game to be issued by a one-man company, has since been topping the charts all over the world, both in Google Play and Apple’s App Store.

Hill Climb Racing’s over 100 million downloads mark has been achieved across Android, iOS and Amazon Kindle users. The top countries include USA, India, Germany, Russia and Spain. Hill Climb Racing was first released for Android on 22 September 2012. The iOS version was released roughly a month later.
Hill Climb Racing has also reached the coveted free apps number one spot in the US App Store. In Google Play, it has been the top free game in multiple countries and has reached the number one spot in the top free games category in the US.
The game’s popularity inspires Fingersoft to make it even better. “We have kept developing the game and will continue to do so. For us it is extremely important to keep Hill Climb Racing evolving. The first version was released with one car and four stages. The latest version has fourteen cars and fourteen stages,” says Toni Fingerroos, founder and CEO of Fingersoft.

“We have over four million people playing Hill Climb Racing every day. The game currently has 4.7 stars out of five in Google Play with over 810,000 reviews, making it one of worlds best rated mobile games,” says CEO Fingerroos.
To celebrate both the 100 million downloads and its first anniversary, Fingersoft has released localized versions of Hill Climb Racing for Spain, Italy, Russia, Germany, France, Poland and Japan. Hill Climb Racing is also now available for Windows 8 devices, and a Windows Phone version is currently in development.
Hill Climb Racing is a fun-packed and extremely addictive physics-based racing game - and it’s still sold for the reasonable price of free.
