The Counting Kingdom Released – Rescue the Kingdom Today

Get your balloons and party hats out, The Counting Kingdom has released! Today is a day of magic, monsters and math – please help us spread the word!



Along with font updates and a few small graphical fixes, here are the bugs that have been fixed in the 1.0.0 update:

  • If the player has the Helper Panel up and combines spells, the panel is no longer accurate
  • In the first tutorial, players could attempt to drag the spell causing all sorts of weirdness to happen
  • The incorrect number of doubling tiles was showing up in Free Play mode
  • If a battering ram gets into the castle, but on the same turn a crumbling tower gets the last monster, the player will lose and then win

A HUGE thank you to all of our Early Access players who have given us feedback and helped us track down bugs – we’re incredibly grateful for your help making this game great! A big wizardly hug from all of us here at Little Worlds Interactive.

Bucket o' Changes: 0.9.1 Update

With the game feature complete we've been polishing things up, getting to all the little things that we didn't have time to revise before, and making sure the game is as bug-free as possible. Here's the list of what's new in this build:

End of Game Cinematic
After you've been kind enough to rescue the Kingdom, it's time to celebrate! I don't want to spoil the ending, but I can promise that it includes cake.

If you've already finished the game, you can access this cinematic by clicking on the little gear button on the Title Screen, and selecting "End Story". This will be locked until you finish the game, so no peeking ahead!



New Particle and Sound Effects
Check out the new particle effects for the Kaboom potion, Freeze potion, and the crumbling towers. We also have new sounds for the Kaboom potion and Battering Rams.

Tiny Changes

  • Updated Credits screen
  • The Kaboom potion now gives 200 points
  • Players can now reset their save data from the title screen menu
  • Players can now access both cinematics from the title screen menu

Bugs that have been fixed
  • Players can click castles during the "You Rescued The Counting Kingdom" screen
  • Monsters that are moved onto doubling tiles do not have their numbers doubled
  • The spell effect doesn't show up for the armored monster the second time you cast a spell on it
  • If you move a monster behind a battering ram it stops moving forward
  • If you use a freeze potion and the battering rams come out during the next two turns, after the potion wears off that row of monsters doesn't move forward
  • Players can use the Move potion, but then not click on any of the arrows

    The game is very close to launching - we'll be announcing the official date tomorrow! If you find any bugs please let us know in the forums so that we can get those all squashed as quickly as possible!

    Thanks as always,
    Jenna and the LWI team ːwizardmagicː

“Combine the fact that even I got dragged into enjoying The Counting Kingdom being a crusty adult with it’s gorgeous art direction, cute monsters and colourful scenery, and I think this is a game that’s pushing all the right buttons.”
Indie Statik

“Making a video game designed purely for entertainment is hard. Making a video game that can entertain and educate seems infinitely harder, if only for how rarely the goal is accomplished... That’s what makes it so special when a game like The Counting Kingdom, which is available on Steam early access, manages to deftly balance fun and learning.”
The Daily Dot

“In The Counting Kingdom, math is magic, but it’s a magic that’s available to all. Without time limits, without punishment, and with a focus on fun and strategy—and yes, cuteness.”
Pixelkin

Great learning game for kids and many adults. Teaches addition, subtraction, and multiplication mostly with positive numbers, but a few negative numbers too depending on in-game circumstances. Short and mildly entertaining for people who are already good at math. Either way, well worth the buy regardless of sale status. I have no complaints about it.

Absolutely recommended! This game already has that elusive, addictive quality. Combining scrolls, using potions and adding monsters together is a blast. The production is already of a high quality too. The presentation is bright and cheery enough that children will enjoy it and yet not so cute that adults would feel childish playing it. In short, it's very enjoyable to play.

This is a very cute addition game which has surprising layers to it. While it's intended for kids, it's also good for low-impact gaming for adults when you're just not up to the concentration needed for platformers or combat. It combines tower defense with addition skills, and can be surprisingly twisty! Fun without being laborious for short bite-sized pockets. You won't play this (probably) for an hour or five at a time, but for ten or fifteen minutes between online tasks or while waiting on downloads, it's really enjoyable.

Beat the game in 1.5 hrs.

For serious gamers: Add endless mode plz, otherwise barely worth 10$ for me.

For Children, teens and casual gamers: Buy it now!

Pros:
- Stunning flattened aesthetic
- Educational for mental arithmetic

Cons:
- Low replayability

Great design encourages you to challenge yourself in order to be more efficient. The person(s) who made this game liked what they were doing, and it shows. Glad this went through James Recommends because I never would have found this otherwise. My 4 year old took to it immediatly and put a solid half hour into it and I saw improvement in her math skills clearly. I am going to keep an eye on whatever this company does in the future.

This game is a lot of fun to play with the kids, owing much to its strategy focus through math.

To be honest, I found myself enjoying playing it (being a dad) more than an adult probably should, seeing as it is designed quite well and turns into quite the fun brain teaser kind of experience, allowing you to pull of some crazy combos, if you're any good at addition and subtraction.

I certainly recommend this game to mothers and fathers all over the place as a fun way to get your child engaged in some math.

The art style is cool, the game is deeper than it appears, and it's just a good time, all around.

Certainly worth it.

I've only had this game for a short time, but I've already managed to rack up hours of gameplay. It's just so wonderful!!

The game itself is a turn based, tower defense game involving math(addition & subtraction), and magic. The design is splendid; the art, the music, and gameplay are all kid friendly. For instance, some of the built-in mechanics will even gently guide younger children to the answers if they become stuck.

There are a myriad of ways to clearing the monsters though. You can add spells together, and chain monsters together in various ways. You're also given potions with varying effects as you progress through the game, so there's a lot of creativity in how you beat each level. That creative freedom is what really gets me addicted. My favorite thing to do is take big risks, and let the monsters stack up a bit. Then unleash all the potions, and big spells in an attempt to get 'full clears'. : )

Story mode itself has numerous levels to progress through, and while you can revisit them at any time; there's also 'free play' mode with scaling difficulties. Oh, and each level is generated on the fly; so there's never any sequence to memorize. It's always going to be a new, and exciting challenge!

A simply charming game for all ages; I definitely recommend it!

To be short and sweet, this game is one of those classic, "Good game but for the right price only." What I mean is that this game is great for what it is. A simple game about counting, defeating enemies by doing simple math and thinking. The game is very short if only doing the story missions, like me, finishing in little under 2 hours. I procured this game for nine dollars but I would recommend getting this game either in a bundle, maybe, or on sale. If you find it for a good deal, buy it for you little one or yourself, if you're really bored.

Just to say again, it is a recommended game but only for the right price and audience.

I like this game a lot. Demo'd it at PAX Prime and ended up buying 7 copies over the course of 3 days I was there for people back at home. It mixes math with logic and problem solving in a fun, yet simple fashion. I do have a simple suggestion which is when hitting the escape button and you are prompted with a confirmation screen, please have the screen cancel uupon pressing escape once more.

Good game for your children, but that's it, for other people there's absolutely no challenge even on highest difficulty. Takes about two hours to completely beat if you are good with maths and can count to 50.

Really short game, but super cute and fun. Finished it in a couple hours, but it's worth the couple bucks. It's nice they have harder difficulties in free play mode.

This is a very well-designed game. It presents addition as a fundamental game challenge that increases in difficulty as the player continues. Unlike most education games, it's the game that takes the spotlight. The core mechanics are very strong, and the game develops a one-more-level mentality even if you already understand arithmetic. The potions and sorcery aspects are fun, and the overall aesthetic design is very appealing. If you, or your child, has struggled with addition, I highly recommend it. You won't notice you're learning anything until you already have. If you're already proficient with arithmetic, it's still fun. Perhaps pick it up on a future sale. It will give you 2-4 hours of gameplay. Overall my only complaint is that I wish it had continued on into more advanced math; which isn't a complaint so much as a hint to the developers.

This is a fantastic educational and fun game, mainly targeted at kids around 8. They will learn lots of adding up math, and some substraction. The artwork is very pleasing to the eyes, and the monsters arent too scary.

If you have kids that need help with their maths, this is the game for them.

Highly recommended

This is a super fun game for all ages, it makes you think but more than anything it's fun! I kind of want to go as a monster with a number on my chest for Halloween too. The monsters are super cute, the music is great and overall it's a super rad game. I highly recommend it!

Brilliant educational game! Combines genuinely fun gameplay with reinforcement of basic math skills. Played it with my first grader, and he couldn't get enough of it. We enjoyed working together to figure out the gradually more difficult calculations, and he yelled "Boom!" every time we managed to clear the board. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to other parents of grade school kids, even at full price. Kudos to the developers.
