Enter the ambient world of Osmos: elegant, physics-based gameplay, dreamlike visuals, and a minimalist, electronic soundtrack. Your objective is to grow by absorbing other motes. Propel yourself by ejecting matter behind you. But be wise: ejecting matter also shrinks you. Relax; good things come to those who wait. Progress from serenely ambient levels into varied and challenging worlds. Confront attractors, repulsors, and intelligent motes with similar abilities and goals as you. It is 100% DRM and region free, and features procedural generation (play random versions of any level) and an electronic soundtrack by Loscil, Gas/High Skies, Julien Neto, Biosphere, and more.

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.
