Stephen Hawking performs “Worm Hole”
“The idea of the game is to make a link between the ‘powers’ of each character and his or her discoveries and inventions,” says Sanches on his website. The lineup includes Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Pythagoras, Stephen Hawking, Nikola Tesla, Marie Curie, and Isaac Newton. One more scientist is yet to be announced, and hopefully it’s a woman or a person of color, because the current lineup is pretty exclusively white and male.
This isn’t the first oddball education fighting game produced by Superinteresante: the magazine also made Filosofighters, which pits philosophers, including Plato, Descartes, and Marx, against one another.
No word yet on the launch date for Science Kombat, but when it is released, it’ll be free to play online. For now, enjoy the beauty of these sprites.
