In a far-off magical land, there are two kingdoms: they are neighbors to one another, yet they couldn’t be more different. The warm bright Kingdom of Summer is ruled by a faint-hearted King while The Winter Empire is ruled by a masterful Empress from her palace sculpted entirely from ice! For years, one wizard has guided both The Kingdom of Summer and The Winter Empire but with so many troubles to solve, the wizard has become weary. This is why he calls upon you, his new apprentices! You’ll embark on a journey to uncover the mysterious Moon Stones and help the wizard to solve the mysteries troubling the land.

Kids Chronicles is a family, co-operative game of adventure and mystery investigation, mixing a board game and app.

As magicians' apprentices, players dive into the fairy tale lands of the Kingdom of Summer and the Winter Empire. Accompanied by the faithful familiar, Nills The Moon Cat, they embark on a quest to find four magical Moon Stones. To achieve their goal, young magicians have to solve numerous mysteries and help inhabitants of both Kingdoms overcome their problems.

Using the Scan&Play technology, each component — locations, characters, items, etc. — has a unique QR code, which depending on the scenario selected will activate and trigger different clues and stories. Experiencing the 3D scenes requires only a mobile phone or a tablet. Players simply hold their mobile device in front of their eyes to immerse themselves in the game's universe and search for clues in a virtual world.
