Educational Korean DS game rewards kids with virtual clothes



MapleStory and many Korean developed online games make money from microtransactions. Virtual clothes are hot in the region and Hansol DS Danwon Haksueb Funhito knows how to utilize the phenomenon. CTGame Entertainment’s second DS title (side note: their first is a Korean version of Hanafuda) is essentially a visual brain training game designed for kids with a reward system. Each quiz you complete adds virtual currency to an account that can be used to obtain 300 items to dress your avatar.



It’s sort of like a parent encouraging their child to get As by promising a monetary reward. Except the parent is the owl-bear thing with huge claws on the right.
