This game was made possible by a grant from the Digital Media & Learning Competition. The goal was to make a truly educational game that was also genuinely fun to play. We hope students, teachers, and gamers will all enjoy the game, and encourage you to visit, which will soon have an open forum and eventually downloadable teacher materials.

The game was designed by Anthony Pecorella. The lead programmer was larsiusprime of Super Energy Apocalypse fame, and the art was by LILg, who created the Reincarnation series. A custom soundtrack was created by Hibiki Haruto.

Also thanks to Dr. Jed Macosko at Wake Forest University and Dr. David Dewitt at Liberty University for providing lots of support and biological guidance.

Thanks so much for the support and kind words - this has already exceeded my hopes in terms of a response for the game! :-D

This game can be processor intensive. There are some options in the menu for reducing the graphics that may help.

***Fixes in v1.0.1***
- Fixed issue in final level with some buttons suddenly no longer functioning.
- Fixed membrane explosion when recycling membrane quickly.
- Possibly fixed fatty acid glitch in Level 3
- Fixed two typos

There is still an issue with getting stuck too far outside of the colored area. Solution - don't go out there. :) It's a somewhat complicated fix, so I'm not sure if we'll get it in or not, but it's the easiest to avoid too.

The game was good, except a bug

First of all, the game itself is great, a bit long explanations in the beginning, but that's ok, after all it's educational. Some great gameplay after that.

I could play it until the last level. The last level I couldn't finish, due to something I think is a bug? I had more than enough of all resources. But when the toxins were at 58%, it just ignored further presses on the "Toxin" button. It didn't give any message or anything, just didn't make any toxins anymore, and didn't subtract the resources. And then a bit later this started happening to the green things that should pick up radicals too! So I couldn't continue playing there unfortunately :(

not to mention, it would have come in handy for my biology quiz a few weeks ago.
fun game, appropriate graphics (which helps us understand the functions of the cell etc. very clearly) and very nice, calming background music :)

Very good.

Although I'd have to say that Jeeves simply made it a 10.

Lovely game, however...

I got stuck at some point. Not because I couldn't manage to beat the level, but because I just couldn't.

When I died in the Gator's stomach (membrane burst), I hit retry. Now, I'm stuck with no membrane (even though the rest is there), and 0 of every ressources. trying "restart" doesn't work. Hitting "Quit" goes to a black screen with the game over popup of the membrane bursting.

Possible Glitch?
