In 1935, Erwin Schrodinger designed a thought experiment in which a feline trapped in a box could be said to be simultaneously alive and dead until it was observed as being one or the other (to be clear, the experiment was imaginary, so weep not for its nine lives); this experiment is now known as "Schrodinger's Cat." In 2014, "Schrodinger's Cat" will also be the name of a video game collaboration between Worms series developer Team17 and indie developer Italic Pig.
Schrodinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark invites players into the box in which Schrodinger would have placed one unfortunate kitty for some fun. The game's trailer, however, warns that Schrodinger "doesn't know the half of what goes on in there" before showing a purple cat using anthropomorphic particles to move about in a subatomic zoo. ... Wait, what? Go home, science. You're drunk.
Yes, Schrodinger's Cat is a platformer in which players explore the subatomic level of existence and use quantum physics to solve puzzles. And who said quantum science wasn't fun? Schrodinger's Cat is slated to release in Q3 of this year for PC, Mac and Linux via Steam.
