In a new effort to teach teens about science and technology, the UK-based Science Museum has commissioned a series of free, retro-themed web games for its official website.
The games suite, dubbed Futurecade
, includes four games that aim to teach players about current and future technology in a number of scientific fields, with topics ranging from bacteria engineering, protecting space satellites, to fighting global warming.
The games were developed by the London-based Preloaded, a studio that has done other commissioned game projects for the BBC, Channel 4, Adult Swim, and more.
project is set to debut online
this week, on Thursday, February 2.
