The game, which I found absolutely and delightfully addictive, was created in a weekend by a group of undergrads at the CERN Webfest.
I discovered it while I was on holiday last week and enjoyed some relaxing power-clicking. There's a cheat code in this Reddit thread, which I found useful once I got to the end-game (the creators admit that this needs work). The game's got a ton of (allegedly accidental) sly digs at the way research institutions run, as well as some fascinating insight into the world of particle physics. It's diractastic!
The game's source is on github, for your remixing pleasure.
