If you were an alien from another planet, what would you look like?  Imagine what you would do if your spaceship had crashed on Earth, and you had to explore the planet in order to put your ship back together and return home.  There is an online world which will allow you to be that alien and travel the Earth in an effort to rebuild your spaceship.  Are you ready for some globe trotting fun?  If so, you need to get your parent’s permission to sign on for adventure in BrainNook.

You will be able to design the look of your alien avatar and guide it through various locations on Earth, gathering collectibles and finding the pieces to your spaceship.  Each area of the Earth that you unlock for exploration will give you more information on that part of the world.

There are tons of games that will allow you to earn stars, which are the currency of this virtual world.  With these you will be able to decorate your home room and change the wardrobe of your alien self.  The collectibles that you buy will unlock other parts of the Earth and make great pieces in your home room.  You will also be able to showcase your awards that you achieve when you complete various tasks in BrainNook.

If you have a free membership, you will be able to use preset phrases to chat with your in game friends.  You will be able to visit and comment on the home rooms of others, and you will be able to take pictures of your alien avatar which can be printed out for you to display in the real world.

You will be able to compete against one another in the various games of the BrainNook world, which may encourage you to increase your skills in order to get a better score the next time.  If you have a premium membership you will be able to eventually unlock all of the areas in BrainNook and use whitelist guided chat to be able to communicate even more in depth with your in game friends.

What is even better about being able to travel the Earth as your alien self, is that your parents and teachers will be all for you playing in this virtual world.  As you play, you may find yourself doing better on your Math and English studies.

This is because BrainNook helps you use those stodgy old lessons in way that feels like fun. The more you level up in your effort to return your alien avatar to its home world, the better you will do when those lessons show up again in your school work.

You may even find yourself putting in more homework time just to be able to reach the next level in the virtual world of BrainNook.  If you want to have a good time, do not let that discourage you from getting your parents permission to join this land of intercontinental and interplanetary fun.

BrainNook is free to play.
