Video Game: Big Thinkers!
So come along to our house, where the adventure starts
Reach for the stars and you'll be a super star of smarts
A series of Edutainment Games
by Humongous Entertainment
that's rather...interesting. It stars the rather twisted Ben and Becky Brightly, whose goal seems to be to entertain you while educating you. It's a little bit like the Jump Start
series, except Ben and Becky are quite odd. They transform into anything you can imagine, and own several things you'd never expect a teenager to even dream of having. You play several minigames
to earn SmartStars, where you can collect enough to eventually take part in the Super Star of Smarts challenge.
There are only two games in the series, Big Thinkers! Kindergarten
and Big Thinkers! First Grade
. A second grade version was planned, but it was scrapped after it turned out developing three games at once was too ambitious. Needless to say, much like other minor Humongous franchises, it simply didn't catch on very well. Even poor Buzzy The Knowledge Bug
got more attention than Ben and Becky, and still don't get much love nowadays despite Humongous' growing fandom.
