Quiz: the science of adventure

Starting out I didn’t think I’d find a whole lot of pictures reflecting science but it turned out almost every game has one! So here’s 105 times proof of science in adventure games (OK, using a loose definition of the word).
If you just pick a game and start looking you’ll probably find one of the pictures below. Smile

For this quiz I like to use the pm system so everyone can have a go at the easier ones and you can guess as many, or little, as you want. You can send as many pm’s as you like -not sure if that’s a smart thing to say Confused - and if you guess wrong you may try again in a next pm.
So even if you think you only recognize one or two pics, send me a pm and get your name on the list!

Note that many of the images are resized quite a bit so don’t let the, sometimes low, quality of the pics guide you.
You can submit answers during the next 5 days until wednesday evening (Dutch time, exact time to be announced later), but if people are still looking by then we can extend it with a few days. It’s just for fun so there’s no need to hurry.

Have fun!

edit: hey, the preview screen showed much more of the pics!

Tempting as it was, I decided not to start attacking people with the crowbar.

The idea of pm is that you don’t have to rush…

There are a lot of suitable pics not in this quiz. The number of scientists in AG’s is quite overwhelming. Smile

Maybe, mabe not.  Smile

I’m not allowed so send pm’s anymore, so now I’ll be addressing your pm’s here.
@Elena: Sending several pm’s is no problem, you’re not the only one. Smile
All’s correct except 25 and 102.

@Trunkyo: All’s correct except 1, 9, 28 (unless you can prove it Smile), 46, 58, 80 and 89.
@Bastich: All’s correct except 23.
@Bastich: 96 and 97 are correct.

Why is there a limit on the PMs we can send here?  I can see having a limit on the number of stored PMs, but a limit on sending them seems kind of silly.

Nah, I’m too busy exploring The Space Bar universe right now.
What a magnificent game it seems to be.

I couldn’t guess all the screenshots even if I try. I mean, not until the deadline (on Wednesday or something).
