Square Enix has announced Mensa Academy, a new brain training game that will keep you thinking.
The game will include mini-games and challenges and questions endorsed by Mensa, the renowned global high IQ society.
Created in collaboration with Mensa, players will be able to take part in Play, Coach and Test modes. Play mode challenges players to take on 100+ replayable levels in five disciplines— Numeracy, Language, Logic, Memory, and Visual. Coach mode will allow players to hone their abilities and assess their progress in key disciplines before taking a Test and discovering their Mensa Academy score.
“Mensa Academy brings something unique to the brain training game market,” stated Roger Cheung, Head of Acquisitions, Square Enix Europe. “We have teamed up with Barnstorm Games to bring this title, developed in cooperation with Mensa, to market in the UK and PAL regions. Mensa Academy is the most credible game of its kind to date from the definitive experts in the field of measuring and fostering intelligence. The power of the mind is fascinating, the real challenge is how to best maximise its potential. Mensa Academy tangibly tackles this in a user-friendly way, whilst providing hours of entertainment.”
“We are delighted to be partnering with Square Enix for the release of our Mensa Academy title in the UK and PAL regions,” stated Simon Jeffrey, CEO of Barnstorm Games. “It was important for us to produce a product that exudes the authority of the Mensa brand, whilst providing a vibrant and entertaining environment in which players can train, take the test and challenge their friends.”
Mensa Academy will be released on July 27 2012 for Nintendo Wii and 3DS, Windows PC platforms, Smartphones and in the near future for HD consoles, Android and iOS.
