No Pain, No Game

The science of pain isn't an obvious starting point for an online game. But the Science Museum certainly has good form making tricky subject matter fun for all ages.

On average, we each consume 373 painkillers per year. Perhaps more surprisingly, scientists have proven that our mood levels affect how intensely we feel pain, and that spider venom could hold the key to future pain treatment. All this and more is explored in a quirky new game called OUCH, part of the Science Museum’s latest exhibition, Pain Less.
