Blog:News/Wasteland 2 developers are using science consultancy
Thwacke! is a consultancy of academics geared towards improving science literacy for the entertainment industry in general and the video-game industry in particular. Founded by PhD candidates in basic science research at McGill, our aim is to bridge the gap between video games and science in order to make their fiction creative, relevant, and immersive.
Our team has a shared interest in gaming and research with a keen eye on how their respective fields are portrayed in popular media. As both researchers and avid gamers, we believe we serve an important role in delivering quality science that enhances both story and game play dynamics for video game developers.”
