Tablecraft is a virtual reality game that teleports you to a solar system of vibrant sci-fi labs. Each lab is equipped with machinery that allows crafting objects from the atoms up, as well as, uh… interesting layout decisions you must work to your advantage. Full of chaotic crafting rooted in actual STEM, this mad scientist simulator is a fun and playful way to reignite your love of science!
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch,
you must first invent the universe.
– Carl Sagan
Everything is made of atoms, but how?
Well, just follow the recipes. It's sort of like cooking. With access to the right lab machines, you'll be able to craft larger and larger structures from the atoms up!
The most complex structures you can craft are living, autonomous creatures! The recipe is a bit... streamlined. So don't be alarmed if your creations look and behave somewhat unusual. Just roll with it. These peculiar lab pals may just surprise you with how handy they can be.

One very-long-night ago, your Home Lab was outfitted with every machine you could want. However, after a slight... mishap with the authorities, you now work in the wackiest laboratories in the solar system to earn back your credentials.
It turns out the universe is not only full of wonder, but also customers in need! Scientists for hire are in high demand on alien planets. Visit the labs on those planets and make sure everyone leaves with a simile on their face!

GALAXY OF LABS
Your Home Lab is a familiar haven amidst a galaxy of unusual laboratories. This sandbox lab, once a state-of-the-art facility, now stands as a humble starting point on your quest to regain your scientific standing.
Perform well in expeditions to other labs and you shall unlock new and more complex missions, machines, and recipes. Soon enough you'll be a fully licensed mad scientist once again.
REBUILD YOUR HOME LAB
Nature's Building Blocks
The BioMoleculizer allows you to construct biopolymers — the vital building blocks of life! From the sturdy Collagen that fortifies our skin to the resilient Chitin forming an insect's armor, you'll have the chance to create and explore these incredible substances. But that's not all; with the Mineralizer, you can transform the atoms into stunning minerals like the shimmering Quartz and the crystal-clear Calcite.
Tablecraft's free companion app, designed for traditional desktops and mobile devices, allows users on non-VR devices to seamlessly connect with VR labs on the same Wi-Fi network through local peer-to-peer, so no actual internet connection required! In the classroom, this allows educators to not only monitor and guide the students in VR, but also include the rest of the class in the VR activities.
Non-VR participants can navigate and interact with each VR lab by embodying a virtual drone, which VR users can also see and interact with. This fosters a sense of communal engagement, reducing the feeling of VR isolation and promoting collaborative play.
