Providing resources to those that need them most

Zygote Games, is the maker of "Bone Wars: The Game of Ruthless Paleontology." Zygote is currently promoting this special offer:

Limited time, special offer to people living in Kansas or shipping to Kansas! Go to our special ordering page for more information and a press release.

Why give a discount to Kansas? Why not Wyoming or Vermont? Simple: the Kansas Board of Education has attempted to give equal space in the state public school biology curriculum to the doctrine of "Intelligent Design," claiming that it is a "scientific theory" about the origin and development of life. It isn't, of course, and when real scientists complained that "Intelligent Design" fits none of the criteria for an actual scientific theory, the Board responded by redefining "science" so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations for phenomena.

So we're doing our part for science. BONE WARS is all about how scientific theories get developed and tested (along with being about lying, stealing, and conniving). Maybe our game can do what the schools in Kansas won't.

What a great company.
