Asymptopia Crossword Builder (Math/Text) is an application that runs in any modern Web browser, but does not require an Internet connection (if it is installed locally). The application was designed to allow teachers to quickly produce well-designed, challenging activities. The application features a configuration panel where the user can either enter their own word-hint pairs, or generate math-crossword problems via a single button. The math functionality generates word:hint pairs like: "four:7/x-3/8=11/8", where the hint corresponds to the problem, and the student would write the letters "four" in the corresponding boxes of the puzzle.
Gelide is a configurable multi emulator and multi system front-end that lets you manage any kind of emulated system (PC, console, arcade, etc.).

Step Into Chinese is a flexible language-mining tool to assist English speakers seeking to understand the Chinese language. Inside is an extensively cross-referenced data structure which allows the user to pursue deeper understanding of contexts, for example, by "locking on" to a particular Pinyin context and viewing successive instances of the same morpheme used in similar contexts.
BoxWorld is a puzzle game where the player has to place boxes over special places in order to gain energy to teleport to the next level. The boxes can only be pushed, not pulled, thus requiring ordering of the boxes with caution. If the boxes are put into positions that prevent further movement, the player can start the level over, but loses a life by doing so. There are no time limits, so the player can relax and think before acting. The game features nice graphics, enjoyable music, and 525 increasingly difficult levels. The player must come up with more complex strategies on the later levels, with many more pushes and special tricks in order to place the boxes in corners or long corridors. Sometimes most of the boxes are already placed in the appropriate area, but the player has to replace all the boxes just to be able to move another box and arrange it where it belongs.
Biogenesis simulates in a visual fashion the processes involved in the evolution of unicellular organisms in nature. It tries to be a didactic approximation to the ideas of mutation or evolution, and can be enjoyed also as an entertainment. It's intended to serve as a support to show students some basic biological facts. The idea of Biogenesis is taken from Primordial Life, but it's an independent project.
FIFE is a cross-platform 2.5D game creation framework written in C++ and Python. Games can be created with a combination of engine, editor tools, game specific scripts, and game content (e.g. maps, graphics, and sounds). The framework is not tied to any type of game (e.g. RTS, RPG), but instead provides a flexible platform for all of them. It supports different isometric views and a pure top-down view. Instead of full 3D flexibility, the engine focuses mainly on using high quality 2D graphics. This puts fewer demands on target platforms and also simplifies the framework and game development.
