Simulate your own pandemics and try to destroy the human race as quickly as possible. There’s even DLC that flips the script and lets you work to stop a global pandemic.

Tesla vs Lovecraft

This one’s a bit of a tenuous link, but who doesn’t want to play as a mech-piloting version of Nikola Tesla? What’s more, as the name suggests, you get to mow down hordes of Lovecraftian minions in single-player or with friends in local co-op.

Terra Nil

This reverse city builder lets you use the power of science to breathe life back into barren wastelands, restoring ecosystems to their former glory after climate change decimated them. Terra Nil bright, replayable, and offers some hope in the face of a climate emergency.

Little Alchemy

People might argue over whether alchemy is science or magic, but Little Alchemy encapsulates the most fun part of chemistry – mixing stuff together! Start with the four basic elements and mix your way to discovering the dinosaurs.

Bridge Constructor Portal

Combining the physics-based fun of Portal with the engineering experience of Bridge Constructor is the aptly-named Bridge Constructor Portal, a science game set in the Aperture Science Enrichment Center where you must use the company’s inventions to solve complex puzzles.
