Ibology is an independent game development company created in 2013 by Bob Saunders to explore ideas about space, strategy, procedural generation, and evolution.
In 2016, Ibology was commissioned to create an educational game for a live competition at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The result is "The Martian Frontier", a cooperative survival strategy game set on Mars.
Additional science-education games have been commissioned by the Patriots Technology Training Center, with a tentative event date of February 2017.
