Game Development

We aim to provide players with a greater appreciation for all kinds of science by developing games that foster curiosity, creativity, and skepticism. Check back in the future for more information on our work!

Unity Asset Store

Airtight tools and workflows are the foundation for everything we do. We make some of our best tools available on the Unity Asset Store. Visit our publisher page or developer forum to learn more, or contact us if you need help.


We consult on a wide range of products, from commercial entertainment to education and research. In addition to our technical specialties, we're well-versed in major theoretical perspectives in the learning sciences. Get in touch if you'd like to talk about your needs.
