Colloqium #25

24 February 2024


Elemonsters is a transmedia storyworld about the chemical elements, that have come to life as monsters – materialized in a card game. Think of it as “Pokémon with chemistry”.

In this lecture I will talk about the origin story of the idea, the several stages of development, the final output and its spin-offs. My emphasis will be on gamification and merging science with fantasy creatures.
