A downloadable game
Game in development - playable prototype soon!
The Operant is a utopian narrative-driven puzzle game. You play as a young behavioral scientist, making experiments on lab mice. As you progress through the game, you will witness this obscure research field gain notoriety and interest from the private sector. You will accept, or deny research funding from questionable enterprises and see what effect your discoveries have on the world around you and yourself.
The game takes you from the safe place of scientific rationality to the edges of human cognition, exploring weather free will actually exists, or it is just an ad-hoc process of the mind, rationalizing its behaviour - question that behaviorists were desperatly searching an answer to.
