Short Description: 
A suite of powerful design automation tools that aim to provide a designer-in-the-box for use in a deeply generative and adaptive sequel to the original game.

Overview

Refraction is an online puzzle game for teaching fractions developed by the Center for Game Science at the University of Washington. In the game, the player builds a network of devices that split and recombine lasers (dividing and adding their fractional power levels) in order to power disabled spaceships and save the animals inside. Along with the mathematical challenge of each level, the player must use devices to bend lasers around obstacles and to form the right beams from the right directions.
