We're pleased to annnounce three new games about American history, film history, and astronomy!

Hold the Fort!
Fort McHenry National Historic Monument and Historic Shrine
Baltimore, Maryland

Take command of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. The fate of the Baltimore lies in your hands!

After two years of war, the British have invaded Washington D.C., burned the White House, and are now sailing up the Chesapeake to attack Baltimore. Fort McHenry stands in their way — but victory or defeat depends upon your nerves and wits. For, as commander, you are responsible for the defense of the fort and the city. You must lead the troops and manage resources to keep the fort from falling under the withering British bombardment. As the bombs explode overhead and rockets whiz past, you must manage fort resources and inspire your troops. For if fortitude falls, the troops will desert and the battle will be lost.

Throughout the bombardment, keep the flag flying — the bigger the better — to inspire the troops and to let everyone else (including a certain lawyer named Key) know that the fort has not fallen to the British.

Go to Hold the Fort!

Vilify Me!
Vilified as Blofeld
International Spy Museum
Washington, D.C.

Transform yourself into the world's most feared villain and design a lair that even 007 cannot infiltrate.

James Bond has faced some of the most diabolical villains ever imagined. With this app, you can turn yourself into one of them. Take a photo of yourself and choose villainous clothing, physical attributes, and taunts to transform into a Bond villain. Then take the Lair Challenge: with $1 million in hand, choose your lair location, security elements, and decor while trying to stay on budget and attempting to prevent Bond from infiltrating. How good a villain are you? You'll find out in the end when Bond conducts an assessment of your lair design.

Vilify Me! features ten notorious Bond villains, including Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Rosa Klebb, Jaws, and Elektra King; and five classic lairs, including Blofeld's volcano, Gustav Graves' Ice Palace, and Stromberg's Atlantis.

Eduweb developed this interactive for the International Spy Museum's exhibition, Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the James Bond films. It's available in three ways: on iPads in the museum exhibit, as an iPad app from the App Store, and soon also online as a browser-based interactive.
