The Quantum Prisoner, Out Now, is a Curious Free-to-Play Browser Game

The Quantum Prisoner

Solve a decades-old mystery in The Quantum Prisoner.

Anyone can pick up The Quantum Prisoner, a point-and-click title from CEA, a French public scientific research organisation. Now playable in English, the game is available on mobile devices and PC as a free browser-based title.

In the game you’re tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Artus Cropp, a physician who disappeared in the 1960s. You play as Zoe as she solves more than 30 puzzles with scientific and engineering twists to them. Each puzzle will bring you one step closer to solving this decades old mystery and changing the world.

The team behind the game have assured gamers that you don’t need to know anything about science to play. “…you learn as you play along, in line with the scientific approach,” says Roland Lehoucq, an astrophysicist at CEA. The purpose of the game is to be fun and education for anyone who wants to give it a try.

You can play The Quantum Prisoner completely for free in your browser; no registration or download required. There are no ads, either. If you’d prefer to play offline however, there is an option to download. The game has been designed for players aged 13 and over.

If you fancy jumping into a mysterious adventure, play The Quantum Prisoner right now on its website.

Becca knew that she would be addicted to video games for the rest of her life when she saw the first pixelated zombie shambling across her TV screen while playing Resident Evil 3. She particularly enjoys being scared, laughing until she cries, or just plain crying while experiencing games. When she isn't playing games she loves spoiling her cat Usagi and eating any kind of sushi she can find.
