Our games are now free for education

Dev AndrewGarrison  1.9 years ago

Starting today, our games can be used for free for education. Educators now have access to download the Windows and Mac versions of SimpleRockets 2 and SimplePlanes (DRM-free) and install them on any number of classroom computers.

We've heard many great things over the years about how teachers are using our games in the classroom. They lend themselves well to teaching physics concepts and students seem to enjoy them. Fundamental concepts such as velocity, acceleration, gravity, lift, drag, etc can easily be demonstrated with an airplane or a rocket hurtling through the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds and that has a way of grabbing and maintaining a student's attention. SimpleRockets 2 goes a step further and can demonstrate advanced concepts such as orbital mechanics and many other rocket science concepts.

If you are an educator, just visit this page and click the Submit Request button. After we review your request, you will be given access to the downloads page where you can freely download our games for Windows and Mac.

If you are a student, help spread the word and let your teachers know!

    Can you add a physics aerodynamic arrows to the game
    That means there will be virtual arrows on the plane wing and on the body that shows the how the plane creates the force and momentum for moving the plane and Turing the plane(Ex:If you truned the plane right it shows that the wings RIGHT control surface moves up and the Left control surface moves down) This same thing should happen to every important part of the plane
    This can teach important Physical Aerodynamics to kids
    Thanks for reading
    And also can you fix the lag
    For every ten seconds the game lags a bit
    This same things happen to high graphics and low also thanks

    This is the best news I can deliver right now. I'm glad that there are devs who actually care about those who are in need. You guys rock, I'll be announcing this to my teachers and colleagues.
