You built a game with science in it!

I enjoyed this. I would have enjoyed so much more of it!

wouldn't consider it a game as such, but certainly a very good looking application, was really mesmerised and immersed by it.

Downloaded the windows version but can't get it to run, html file shows black blank page.

Great presentation and mood. I just wish it was longer.

Tried the linux version... I open the index.html using Firefox (Aurora) and it just plays the arpeggio.wav without showing anything. Why didn't you just upload it to a public folder on dropbox or something?

You blinded me with science.

Pretty cool, but there's not much content! I would have loved something with more of a story or whatever. :)

Looooved the microscope gameplay mechanic, and the visual effect it had. I agree that this isnt a game, but i would love if it was, it has a great idea you could exploit as the microscope mechanic. =)

Can't play on Firefox. I extracted all the resources and are in the same folder, but all I see is a black screen.

What a lovely little game! Maybe you should use other controls for the focus. Some Notebooks do not have the Page Up/Down keys. Other than that: great! :D

It's daft to make a browser game and then force players to download a zip file to play it. If you'd just dumped the files on Dropbox without zipping them up, you could have just linked to the index.html and it would have worked.

Presentation and mood are excellent. There isn't much of a game here but I like it all the same.

Black screen here, too. (Firefox, Win7) I extracted all the files.

Pretty neat idea.

Great style, but doesn't lead far enough to really get sunk in. Would also have preferred the controls to rotate the world, not indicate direction for the camera.

Another black screen with Firefox after extracting all the files :(.

Really should be longer, there's a really good concept here.

To short otherwise great!

Love the focus effect -- it's a very elegant technique.

Agreed, not exactly a game per se, but still an enjoyable and unique experience, and certainly fits the theme. Full points for mood, for sure. Nice job.
