I recommend this game to kids. It has the ability to make them curious about physics.
I am more of a life science type of gal, such as biology and paleontology in terms of scientific knowledge and interest. Having said that, I had to wikipedia what a quark is as well as how they work because I only know about particles that I learned in high school (no quarks there). This game honestly made me more interested in physics in terms of the particles effects towards each other. Of course, the game’s particles are not exact replicas of the originals, but it did make me check out if they really react the way they do. Having said that, I feel like Particulars also serves as an educational game. I would seriously have kids play this.

Interview with The Developer
Was this the first game you have made?
Yes and no. Particulars was the first game I ever made, back in 2009, but back then it was a tiny flash game (you can still find it on newgrounds). Since then both I and the studio have made a number of games and built up our skillsets considerably. Particulars is the third game are not made as SeeThrough Studios.
What made you decide to make a game with this concept?
One of the courses I did as a part of my Physics major at university was High Energy Physics. I found the course quite inspiring, and thus decided to explore the world of quarks through a game. At the time, I had no idea that itd eventually become the fairly large game that Particulars is.
