Not really much more to look into, the basic details are right there in the article. Its a game that utilizes the Rosetta baseline to give a basic structure and then users are asked to look at the structure and see if they see patterns that can be optimized. For most of us it might be an interesting side project to play with but considering it takes actual eyes on it wouldn't be much more than a time killer for me.
