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.

Hey, Ath3i5t?

STFU, troll. also, sweet game. all it needs is some less annoying music. i know it is supposed to be relaxing, but it isn't. also, what is with the way the platypus people move their bills while speaking? Freaky looking stuff.

Truly Amazing

I've played this for the 3rd time and I'm still amazed with it. Whoever says that this ain't the real intelligent thing, c'mon, there's only so much scientific fact you can put into a simple game. It does teach the basic functions, no point going into how every shit evolved and adapted over the years. I'm a biotechnology undergraduate and I still think this game rocks.

This game is "Intelligent Design" propaganda

"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."
Both of these men are creationist hacks trying to get their "science" into schools using the intelligent design wedge strategy, but they have no more knowledge of the actual biological sciences then Jenny McCarthy has about the real genetic causes of autism. Cells don't magically poof new organelles into existence, they evolve, unless you are talking about the creationist "worldview" in which DNA is pre-designed for the future instead of evolving due to what benefits the populations of the different species over long periods of time. Obviously you are trying to make an educational game so please, next time consult real scientists who deal with the actual science and not people who try to make the world fit their pre-conceived views.
