This game was created in answer to a brief by Saint Andrews University, for a serious game jam hosted at Abertay, completed over a total of two and a half days. The brief was from the chemistry department that wished for a game that could be given to new students, to stop them feeling so overwhelmed when they first entered a lab.
Our approach to completing the set out brief was to create a sandbox style game. This allowed players to mix chemicals together and see what reaction this may create. It was hoped that by allowing students to play around with the chemicals in the game, they’d feel more confident about the knowledge of the tasks ahead, as well as the importance of following instructions. Since some reactions could be harmful if not properly prepared for.
The final build was made to work on both the PC and an Android mobile.
