Love is in the Air– Give the game Gerbil Physics this Valentine's Day!

It is true to say that Valentine's Day, for those that celebrate it, is traditionally associated with chocolates and flowers, perhaps stretching to jewellery and perfume if you've been very bad. These are all fine gifts, but dare we say it a little boring when the gifts could be about games.

In an effort to make games-as-Valentine's-Day-presents the socially acceptable norm, we present the "Love is in the Air" Gerbil Physics poster (see This features a plush velvet crimson box choc full of your favourite physics-student gerbils in a romantic heart shape.

You will also observe a carefully polished and strategically placed bomb. Our cute rodent friends are imminently going to be carrying out an impromptu physics demonstration, and if they don't hurry some won't even get their wrappers off.

Gerbil Physics is a game for all the family and makes an ideal Valentine's Day gift for your significant other. It is available for download from the Xbox Indie Games channel on Xbox Live. Rest assured that no gerbils are hurt during actual gameplay, and none were hurt in the making of the poster (apart from that one close to the bomb).
