Not got a lot to do with the iPhone or iPad except that Physikus|HD² is something from Braingame Publishing that is apparently ‘said to be the reference for learning games’ in the sense that, while it’s a fun game to play, it also has educational values. “We are very happy about the decision to develop the new basic technology for Physicus with the help of the FilmFernsehFonds Bayern here, within the Bavarian region.

Physicus (I thought it was Physikus?) was developed with a budget of €85,000 from the Bavarian state chancellery and the FilmFernsehFonds of Bavaria for Reality Twist to be able to bring it to the latest technology.
