Quantum Spectre by EdGE
TERC
In the depths of space, containment fields aredegrading and spectres are threatening to break free. Tore-establish containment, you must solve laser puzzles. Usemirrors, lenses, and more to guide laser beams to colored targetsin this scientifically accurate and wildly cool laser game. Watchout for the spectres... they will haunt you.Quantum Spectre challenges players to solve increasingly trickypuzzles. Each new puzzle requires players to demonstrate a deeperintuition about the behavior of light and an understanding of theoptics tools. Quantum Spectre is part of the Leveling Upcollection, developed by EdGE and to support and measure sciencelearning in games people choose to play in their free time.EdGE — On the edge of science and play! The Educational GamingEnvironments group (EdGE) at TERC hopes to show that learninghappens in all kinds of places by investigating thepossibilities—and challenging the assumptions—of game-basedlearning environments. EdGE is designing and studying games whosemechanics mirror real scientific phenomena, but more importantly,are fun to play.EdGE at TERC Copyright 2013.Work made possible by funding from the National Science Foundation(DRK12 grant #1119144).
