Fun & Games

We've collected our games here for you to select from. Note: Many of the games are written in Java. If you have Windows XP on your computer and have problems opening some games, you might have to download Java from Sun Microsystems.

We have a lot of fun making these games, and we hope that you have fun playing them, but we can't know unless you tell us! Please fill out our survey and let us know what you think--perhaps you have suggestions for future games?
