Quantum Spectre challenges players to solve increasingly tricky puzzles. Each new puzzle requires players to demonstrate a deeper intuition about the behavior of light and an understanding of the optics tools. Quantum Spectre is part of the Leveling Up collection, developed by EdGE and GameGurus to support and measure science learning in games people choose to play in their free time.
EdGE — On the edge of science and play! The Educational Gaming Environments group (EdGE) at TERC hopes to show that learning happens in all kinds of places by investigating the possibilities—and challenging the assumptions—of game-based learning environments. EdGE is designing and studying games whose mechanics mirror real scientific phenomena, but more importantly, are fun to play.
GameGurus — An educational and serious game development studio that develops across PC, online, and mobile platforms, with the clear purpose of challenging players intellectually while providing fun game mechanics and great game play. GameGurus works with EdGE to create compelling educational story lines and to design the captivating virtual environments where those story lines play out.
