The Quantum Prisoner is a free browser-based puzzle adventure, bringing the fun world of science and technology to a global audience.

Featuring 10-12 hours of gameplay, The Quantum Prisoner takes players around the world on a point and click adventure that walks the line between science and science fiction, with retro graphics and  a dose of humour, and is designed to make science accessible and fun for everyone, from 12 years old and over.

Play as Zoe, traveling to all four corners of the globe on the trail of Artus Cropp, a physician who mysteriously disappeared in the 1960s, to uncover the discovery that may have led to his disappearance - a  discovery that will change the world. To progress in your investigation and escape perilous situations, you must solve more than 30 puzzles involving technology (such as operating particle accelerators, fuel cells and robots), and various other branches of science, including environmental and life sciences, physics, chemistry, and maybe even a bit of quantum physics!

The Quantum Prisoner is a browser-based game created by the CEA with the sole purpose of making science fun and more accessible. The game is completely free with no registration required, no ads, and can be played on any browser without the need of downloading a plug-in, unless you desire to play offline.

“We made The Quantum Prisoner with the help of our fellow CEA scientists and researchers with the sole purpose of making science fun and showcasing scientific and technical culture to a younger demographic,” said Roland Lehoucq, astrophysicist at CEA and scientific adviser of the game. “Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a scientist to solve these puzzles! You learn as you play along, in line with the scientific approach. You will be able to move forward thanks to informative videos and facts along the way, as well as assistance from our researchers if you get stuck”. 

Interested fans can take try out the beta build.

The Quantum Prisoner can be played on any sufficiently recent browser with an internet connection - or by offline download or via the Android App, which will be available through the game website on October 5th.
