Playing at learning Japanese

I have no idea how good this is. But this introductory paragraph certainly strikes a chord with me:

The goal of Project LRNJ is to make Japanese accessible to people who enjoy anime or video games, and wouldn't otherwise learn it. To meet this goal, it is necessary that the training program be freely available, efficient, and both attractive and fun for the target audience. There are years of part-time R&D on the project, but the idea of making it into a game only came up in March 2003.

If you're in the market for something like this, let him (and the rest of us here) know what you think. If you know of anyone else who might be interested, pass it on.

My thanks to Darrell Johnson for emailing me the link. I wonder what he things of this.
