Radix Rap

Here is a rap about the Radix experience, written by one of our earliest players, Viraz. He has also been providing tips and tricks about the game over in the forums. Thanks, Viraz!

After you play this game, your life will never be the same
With an exodus of land and no territory banned 
You can explore Ysola more, even if there’s a downpour
You need to learn facts and hopefully don’t step on any cracks 
But you must know Math to follow the right path
You must read and use books as your steed 
Ysola is more than just an island, there is more than just sand
It is a home to more than just a gnome
Radix Endeavor is a game where you crave more than fame 
Knowledge is power and is not always in a tower
You will find it in books, hidden in nooks
You must go on many adventures ...
Some fraught with danger, brave it all like a ranger 
This game is educational but it’s also kinda fun 
Which you will know once everything has begun
Behind the code, the animation, and sprites 
Behind the game’s lights 
You will find Gaming and Learning mixed into one
Because that’s how it’s done, that’s how it’s done.
