Howard Phillips – best known as Gamemaster Howard, one of the first employees of Nintendo America and the founding editor of Nintendo Power magazine – launched a Kickstarter campaign today to fund the development of an app that educates through play.

The iOS game, which might also be ported to Android, HTML5, Wii, and Kinect if it meets its stretch goals, is designed to help people learn through gameplay. Through simple, engaging gameplay, Phillips believes the patent-pending Know-It-All method targets the development of "automated" recall in systems of the brain not targeted by traditional methods.

Users will be able to download user-generated content from the cloud and learn anything from languages to math, to very specific things like people's names.

The Kickstarter campaign has 29 days to go with a funding goal of $50,000.
