The Birth of Illumination Games
On October 18 2016, Space Frontiers: Dawn of Mars was launched at the Lowertown Brewery in Ottawa. This was a networking event where our CEO Dan Stopnicki revealed Illumination Games, a co-publishing company between SEED Interactive and the Canada Science & Techonology Museums Corporation.
The focus of Illumination Games is to captivate users by immersing them in peak experiences, crafted with storytelling and entertaining gameplay at the forefront.
Explore, Mine, Colonize
Establish humanity’s first permanent colony on Mars as Commander Laura Hopewell, a strong female lead amidst diverse scientific specialists. Explore real Martian locations and turn a fledgling outpost into a thriving metropolis. Survival depends on your ability to gather resources, expand bases, and reach new territories while battling unpredictable conditions.
On top of Dawn of Mars being addictive, you’re too busy having fun to realize you’re learning about science and survival in space.
This concept of entertaining, unobtrusive learning is at the core of what we do at Illumination Games. By re-purposing devices people are already familiar with, we take the opportunity to engage them, retain their attention, and teach them something they may not have known before- such as the necessity of solar panels in our current plans for Mars colonization, or that decompression sickness and radiation are real daily problems off-Earth.
