For Science!

Dr X and his arch-enemy Dr Z have competed for world domination over the years, until now. It’s time to find out who’s the Master Evil Genius. For science!

This was my solo entry for PyWeek 16 (April 2013).

The game was completely developed (including the art) during one week and got third place in the overall score.


For Science! is free software (as in freedom and also as in free beer) under GPL version 3 (or later).

Please read the README.txt included in the package for further details.

Source code

Requires Python 2.6 or later (tested with 2.7). Pyglet 1.2 Alpha1 and Cocos2d 0.5.5 have been included in the package, so you only need to install AVBin (version 11 recommended) and optionally OpenAL.

Should work in Linux, Windows and Mac.


The Windows binary bundle should work without installing anything else, just uncompress the ZIP file and run forscience.exe.


Debian/Ubuntu packages will install the game in /opt/forscience and will add a launch icon (For Science!) to your games section.
