Play the Physics is an educational videogame devoted to teach Physics concepts to children.
The idea was to produce a multi-level game, were each level had to focus on a particular concept (kinematic, heating, electro-magnetic fields, electricity, solid bodies dynamics, …). Unfortunately, the game was never finished because the funding project supported the creation of only a demo level.
The only finished level focuses on the change of state of materials (solid, liquid, gas). Here’s a video of the complete gameplay:

My role in the game was as developer. I took care of two features:
- adding to the game the floating helmet (the one throwing the freezing/heating jet)
- I programmed the camera movement together with its position recording system
All the code was written in C++ and based on the Ogre3D engine.
