Featured in Our Digital Edition: Science-Focused Gaming

Discover enriching games with Lab Horizons’ reviews—thoughtfully selected titles that blend fun, science, and technology to enhance and entertain. A curated guide to intellectually stimulating gaming experiences.

Every digital edition of Lab Horizons features our game reviews section. In this section we try to feature games that resonate with the themes of automation, AI, and science. Unlike typical game reviews, our focus is on suggesting rather than critiquing. We select titles that have deeply engaged us and that we believe will offer our readers not only entertainment but also a meaningful connection to the themes they care about and want to see from Lab Horizons.

Our process is semi-meticulous and intentional. Each game we choose to review is assessed for its thematic relevance to our core topics—be it through its gameplay mechanics, narrative, or educational value. We believe in promoting games that stimulate the intellect and provoke thoughtful engagement. Our reviews are designed to guide you towards experiences that are both enjoyable and enriching, providing a taste of how each game integrates scientific and technological concepts.

This month, for instance, our selections include Plate Up!—a game that combines strategy and yelling at your friends in a kitchen environment, Suck Up!—which showcases some pretty amazing new use of AI dialogue technology, and Sixty Four—a clicker/automation game that incorporates logical thinking and a lot of clicking on cubes. These games are chosen because they stand out in their ability to merge fun gameplay with thoughtful, science-based content.

Our reviews aim to serve as a reliable filter, highlighting games that are worth your time and attention. By focusing on games that we have personally enjoyed and found meaningful, we hope to steer our community towards gaming experiences that are more than just pastime activities—they are engaging explorations of science and technology.

Whether you’re a gamer looking for your next favorite title or a science enthusiast curious about how games can reflect and expand upon real-world concepts, our reviews are crafted to enhance your understanding and appreciation of how games can intersect with science content. Also you get a bonus ErrantScience cartoon which is nice.
