Help with the downloadable games

If a downloadable game is an .exe file, just click the link, and choose open. The game will usually be installed among your other programs (otherwise you can choose where you would like to install it during the installation process).

If the game is a .zip or .rar file, choose save, and save it to your pc.
Extract it in a new folder using WinRar for example (if you don't have it, get it from here:

  • The Knowledge Towers

    Hi All,

    We’re making video games in my research group and we wanted to invite everyone to play and compete for fame. The games are simple to play but are hopefully fun and a bit challenging. Today, we’re releasing a new game:

    The Knowledge Towers: a dungeon crawler RPG where you must battle for pictures to unlock forgotten knowledge.

    We’re trying to build some excitement around the games to motivate people to play, so we’ve started a competition until January 3rd where the best players in each game will be acknowledged (and thanked) by name for their significant contributions in a top-tier scientific publication.

    Even if you’re not interested in eternal scientific glory, we’d still love if you played just a game or two and let us know what you think. You can contribute directly to science just by playing a video game!

    The games work best on Chrome, but should be playable on all browsers.

    We’re working hard on improving the games too, so expect to see new features and updates as well in the coming weeks. If you have any comments or questions, we have forums setup for each game too and would love to hear from you too.
