I also found the interference in the beam splitters surprising, although experimenting in the game let me work out enough of the logic to finish the levels.

I found an article on Wikipedia that, from the pictures, seems to be describe the process... I assume this is the simulated effect?

I don't Hong-Ou-Mandel is a two-photon interference. So far in this game there is only a single photon, so you get https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mach%E2%80%93Zehnder_interfero... and https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelson%E2%80%93Morley_e... interferometers.
