$20 Game of the Week: Universe Sandbox (PC)

Designed by Dan Dixon over the course of a 15 year period, Universe Sandbox is exactly what the title implies: a sandbox allowing you to play with the universe. Not so much a computer game as an education tool, Universe Sandbox is a gravity simulator. While it simulates our universe, you can pretty much adjust and test anything within the game, from the size of the planets, position of bodies, to collisions of stars and planets. There are several simulations included with the game, and you can edit them as you wish. So if you want a look at how our solar system looks, or bring about the apocalypse, then you’ll want to download this game. Makes for a good science project too.

$20 Game of the Week: The Cat and the Coup (PC)

Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh was the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran. He won Time Magazine’s ‘man of the year’ award for 1951, and was even called ‘The George Washington’ or Iran. He nationalized the oil industry ticking off the British. The C.I.A led a coup against him, removed him from power, and replaced him with the Shah of Iran. In this free-to-download game (I use the term ‘game’ in passing) developed by Peter Brinson and Kurosh ValaNejad, you get to learn some history about one of the world’s most misunderstood regions, and it’s got a pretty unique art style to boot. Don’t worry, I won’t beat you over the head with round 56789324324 of the ‘games as art’ debate. I’m just saying though, if you’re one of those people that think it is, then this is another piece of evidence supporting your argument.
