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.

A great game.

And some of you are tards. it takes a while to finish but it is possible. Ever thought about moving while getting attacked? Try to maximize defense BEFORE and AFTER attacks.

@lvc888 Of course there is. You just have to move around to find it.

Also, the membrane sadly does whip around the screen. It was only after I added to the cell's size. I can still move but it's just annoying. Still didn't stop it from being a great game.

Honor to you...

for bringing us an amazing and entertaining educational game.
I did learn some interesting facts about cells. My only complain would be that for someone whith no knowledge about life's structure, that's too much information in one time. But providing you know one or two thing before launching the game, you are going to have fun and learn !

The last level is confusing though. The only way I found to beat it was to maintain 10 libosomes, keep two peroxisomes and wait for the ATP lvl to slowly go up. Survive forst wave of viruses by popping a few slicers and wait... Then I start recycling every slicers left, one peroxisome, one chloroplast (I suppose I could recycle the other one too), one mitochondria, then the libosomes and order toxins like a madman.
Basicly, I just rush 0->100% toxins in 10-15 seconds.
That's higlhy counterintuitive.

It was a long time ago that I did enjoy a game and learn somthing useful in the same time. Congratulations for that ! Educational games can be so not rewarding sometimes so that your success is even more impressive !

still slipshod

Glitch: during the last level, when the robot says he is going to sprinkle some glucose, absolutely ZERO glucose appears. game is impossible to complete. needs serious fixing.
