Remember that high school chemistry class you dreaded going to, and always asked to go to the bathroom in just to spend some time away from the impossible language of science? Well shame on you. Chemistry is important, and as the simple puzzle game Sokobond proves, it’s also quite enjoyable.
Playing with atoms is of more than passing significance. Remember Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best:
Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically.
Exciting, eh? Well, Sokobond, a minimalist puzzle game about making chemical bonds and embracing the art of science, captures that joy and madness quite well. Sokobond has already wowed the public with its emphasis on fun, education, and bonding with the molecules that make us who we are.
Sokobond is available for PC and Mac for $10 USD. make your science teacher proud.
