Here are some games we made in Storylab:
You're a new detective, on the lookout for a real mystery. A lady reports her jewelry's been stolen, and a couple of alligators are missing from the zoo. What will you do?
Do a feather and a stone fall at the same speed? What about a heavier and a lighter stone?
A demonstration of using StoryLab to make a learning game, made in a few hours. (Of course, you don't have to limit your games to experiments you can do at home!)
