Did you play Quantum Game with Photons?

It’s a puzzle game with photons, superposition and quantum measurement, right in your browser. With true quantum mechanics underneath!

Good news: there will be part 2. You may have noticed an opening for the game. In short, we were invited by Artur Ekert and we will work late Aug — Nov at CQT in Singapore. The goal is simple:

“All I want is the coolest quantum game in the known multiverse, please!” — Artur Ekert

It will be a drag&drop puzzle game. So, what’s coming in the new version?

And more? Well, we have quite a few ideas. As in any creative process, we need to see what fits it. From tensor diagrams, through Bell inequality to Everett many-world interpretation. Or multiplayer, LaTeX quantum state visualization packet. Or NPM package for quantum optics. Or dedicated apps for iPhone and Android. Or an automatic level design with Generative Adversarial Networks.

At the same time, we really want to:

So, we go by matra of the collaborative list of science-based games:

Actually playable:

you can play them for fun, not “for classroom only”.

Tech-wise it will be JavaScript. We want to make sure it is accessible for people with various operating systems and devices.

Team-wise there are physicists, software engineers, graphic designers, and science communicators.

Stay tuned: follow us on Facebook, Twitter or here.

Expect posts on the team, our inspirations, tech, and design choices, etc.
