More Information

Some problems cannot be easily performed even by a computer — such as making a non-conflicting schedule for university courses. These problems are known as NP-hard problems. In these problems, finding good enough solutions often requires creative leaps, which computers are terrible at doing; unlike humans. In the Network Game, you must help us solving such NP-hard problems and see if you can find the necessary creative leaps.

This game is currently an early demo of gameplay we might pursue further in the future.
