Nerd herder is a single-player puzzle game which follows the day to day awkward interactions of a nerd in his hazardous office environment. The player is tasked with guiding the nerd back to his work station while avoiding obstacles that would repulse, attract or bring harm to the nerd. Through use of an android phone, players must analyze the environment, plan out a path for the nerd and then guide the nerd by zooming in or out with their phone to intimidate the nerd, forcing him in the desired direction.

The game was developed by Richard Shemaka (Georgia Tech), Paul Tillery (SCAD), Dan Spaventa (Georgia Tech) and Harrison Leach (Georgia Tech).
