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.

"Meh"

The gameplay itself is decent, and the function of the organelles is correct, at least.

However, using creationists from Liberty University as "Scientific Advisors" might not have been the best idea. The game is rife with anti-science comments which, in a game supposedly about learning, is not excusable.

For anyone viewing this as a learning tool, please keep in mind that the terminology and function is correct, and that is just about it. Why the game designer felt it necessary to take a creationist bent on things is beyond me.

Fun and interesting but dragged down by a stupid AI. Had a few times where the lysosomes just stopped moving, or all ran off after a single virus while half a dozen other ones bombarded me, same with the slicers, all 30 of them ran off after a single target while a dozen other's got through.

Creationist drivel...

Here we have some nice creationist science taking the guise of an educational tool/game.

You think I'm kidding? Look at the entire premise of the game. The distinct lack of evolution and the magical appearance of items seemingly constructed for a predesignated function.

Also the "professors" (if they even deserve that title is debatable) are known intelligent design proponents, which is a euphemism for creationist dumb ass.

Regardless, I will give a 4/10 because it is well made with attention to detail.
