What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The current version of the game is made available for educational purposes in high school and introductory college physics courses. Feedback from students and instructors is desired.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The full version of the game is expected in mid-2019”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Future levels will include capacitors, inductances, AC voltage sources, and vacuum tubes (for game purposes having the same functionality as transistors, but fitting the environment better). A total of 30 to 40 levels are expected.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently only eight levels are (almost completely) built, the ninth level is a preliminary final level. It already demonstrates basic DC circuit laws with batteries and light bulbs.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The full game will also be free.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are hoping for constructive feedback from player comments.”

About This Game

Gustav Kirchhoff is annoyed because nobody appreciates his circuit laws! You get transported to his secret lair and won't be able to get out until you show mastery!

The first-person game "Kirchhoff's Revenge" teaches the basic concepts of electrical circuits; players need to solve puzzles by assembling macroscopic circuit elements such as batteries, light bulbs, wires, volt meters, and ampere meters. These circuit elements snap together into functional, three-dimensional structures. Moving "charges" are indicated, so as opposed to real circuit elements, currents are visible. Puzzles increase in difficulty and complexity, while side rooms and pre-assembled circuits offer opportunities to learn new concepts.

Game play is strictly based on solving puzzles, there are no dexterity or timed challenges. Once players succeed, they actually get a Schwarzwälderkirschtorte, which they may dispose off as they see fit. The cake is not a lie.

The game has been used in physics courses at the high school and introductory college level, and it is now made available as Early Access to the wider community.
