The Science tag refers to a category of games that incorporate scientific concepts, themes, or elements into their gameplay or narrative. These games often aim to educate and engage players in various scientific disciplines, promoting curiosity, problem-solving skills, and a better understanding of the world around us.

In science-themed games, players can explore topics such as physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, geology, and more. They may encounter realistic simulations or simplified representations of scientific phenomena and processes.

Some common characteristics of science games include:

  • Educational Content Science games typically provide factual information about the subject matter they're based on. This can involve explaining scientific theories or principles through in-game text, visuals, experiments or puzzles. Educational science games often focus on making complex concepts accessible by breaking them down into digestible portions.
  • Puzzles and Problem-Solving Many science-focused games incorporate puzzle-solving mechanics that require logical thinking and experimentation. Players may need to apply scientific principles to overcome challenges, demonstrate critical thinking skills or conduct research within the game world.
  • Sandbox Simulations Some science-related titles offer sandbox-style gameplay where players have freedom to experiment with different variables within a controlled environment. This allows for exploration and discovery by observing cause-and-effect relationships.
  • Citizen Science A subcategory within the Science tag is "Citizen Science," which involves real-world data collection through gameplay activities that contribute to actual research projects conducted by scientists outside of the game itself.

This diverse range of science games provides players with opportunities to engage in virtual scientific exploration, experiments, and problem-solving. Here are a few examples of games with the Science tag:

  • Kerbal Space Program Developed by Squad, this game allows players to design and manage their own space program, simulating the challenges of space travel, orbital mechanics, and rocket physics.
  • Plague Inc: Evolved simulates the spread of diseases, requiring players to understand concepts like infection vectors and mutation rates as they attempt to infect and eradicate the world's population.

The Science tag encompasses a wide range of educational and entertaining games that aim to inspire interest in science fields while providing an enjoyable gaming experience.
