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.

Amazing.

An Edutainment game that's really fun to play. THAT is a true change.

For me, the hardest part was level 5? I think it was? Getting ambushed by all those viruses with little time to regain Membrane HP in between was rough for me, mainly cause I forgot about the Defensins.

This is like a playible Celluar Biology class, And naming I haven't done Collage yet, I found this quite interesting and complex in the scientific point of view.

The only thing that bugged me is on the last level, I was roaming for G and AA, but somehow my Nucleus ended up half-outside my membrane on the south side. Which then caused the membrane to start glitching madly, and I had a very hard time moving down. (But it's not enough to take away from the score since I probabally made it happen by accident lol)

Brilliant game

This game is great! In the year I've been studying biology I've found this more helpful than ANY resource used in the classroom - I seriously wish that this game existed when I needed to know this stuff, I would've got my A then, better late than never though I suppose lol
