As promised, The Quantum Prisoner — a science and technology-focused puzzle game developed by French Public Scientific Research Organization, CEA — is now available to play in full right in your browser. This is a completely free game featuring 10-12 hours of puzzle-based gameplay where players use science, technology, and engineering-based puzzles to solve the mysterious disappearance of physician Artus Cropp. The game takes players all over the world and requires them to operate particle accelerators, fuel cells, interact with robots, and more in order to solve the mystery.
CEA created The Quantum Prisoner in order to make science “fun and more accessible” to younger players — specifically those around age 12/13. Of course, that doesn’t mean if you’re an adult who enjoys puzzle games or has an interest in science and technology, you can’t give it a go. Or, if you’re a parent of a younger child, you can help them play. If you’d like to check out the game, you just need to head to the official website and play it there.
