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 www.cellcraftgame.com, 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.

Just kept waiting

For a game like this one!

I cannot express myself better than saying on how many years I've been hoping that someone made a good game about the cell. It is the most basic building block of all life forms! And besides that, it's complexity is just big enough for someone to make a game about it.

Just wanna say thanks for sharing this wonderous creation.

not bad

but it was a bit boring after a while. You can see why not many people go into science.

CellCraft responds:

Yeah, sorry about that! This seems to happen occasionally - we're hoping to fix that bug tomorrow. Thanks for the score despite the bug though!

Fun AND educational!

Played up to level 6, and I loved it! The cut scenes were a great bonus - kept things interesting. Only qualm I had was that a little extra nucleic acid on the playing field would have been nice. Other than that, not bad.
