Introducing Dinosaurs And Katakana – Siliconera’s Katakana Training Game



One of the top secret projects we’ve been working on at Siliconera is our very first flash game! An angry stampede of dinosaurs are chasing humans trapped on an island. You can save them with the power of… katakana?!


Dinosaurs and Katakana is an arcade style katakana training game designed to help people interested in studying Japanese recognize katakana symbols. All you need to do is type the corresponding English text to eliminate enraged dinosaurs. You don’t need to know any katakana to play Dinosaurs and Katakana either. Helper English text coaches you while you play.


We’re going to kick the launch of Dinosaurs and Katakana off with a contest! On October 19 one of the top ten scorers on the leaderboards, selected by random, will get a copy of Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis. Whoever is in first place will win a Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit prize pack including a copy of Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit for the PlayStation 3 and a Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit t-shirt. Please remember to SAVE your score on the leaderboards to enter the contest.
