    "For the scientist in all of us, or the mom who loves knowing that there is actual learning going on in game form! Electromagnetism is explained in detail, and in game concept, one play at a time. The best thing, it is engaging, and fun at the same time! "

    "Finding games that involve science on Steam for my kid has been troubling. Most are too violent, or don't teach him enough. Kerbal Space Program involves real science and made my son more interested in science. He plays a lot, but I play more often when he's asleep."

    "Portal 2 is a steam puzzle game that has been highly received. It's a fun game that will keep your brain active and thinking to get to the end of the puzzle. It's available on steam at a reduced price, I would recommend it."

    "I love Quantum Conundrum! It reminds me so much of the TV show Rick and Morty. Since I am both a science and puzzle nerd, this game is perfect for me! In this game, I have traveled through different portals and dimensions, solving different puzzles. I like this game for many reasons: it's science fiction themed, the artwork of the game is interesting, and you get to solve puzzles with science. It is a wonderful game I would have never found out about, if it weren't for this solution. I highly recommend it!"
