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.


Thank you


Hats off for the effort..

Hats off for the effort..

Just wonderful!

This game is just wonderful, everything is just awesome!
The concept, the gameplay, the artwork, the music, anda truly educational and entertaining game.
Very interesting too!

I volunteer myself to translate it to portuguese.
My girlfriend studies pedagogy and she would absolutely love the game!
If i could translate the game to portuguese i would make sure to send it to some schools i have contact and my girlfriend, who actually works at 2 schools, would use it too.

Intriguing and fun!

I was very pleasantly surprised with this game. A huge amount of effort was clearly put into it being biologically accurate, yet not flood those of us that are not biologists by profession with excess scientific information. I was always fascinted by how our bodies and, indeed cells, work on a microscopic level, so this was a great educational platform you've chosen to create the game on.

I haven't encountered any bugs within the game and have to admit, it got pretty challenging with the larger virus waves. It was great to see just how many different viruses there are and how (our) cells have to fight them off with different, ingenious, fantastic means.

I usually dislike educational games, since they prefer to overcomplicate things and not put in much effort in the 'game' department. However, in this game, I feel the balance is just perfect.

Great job! There should be more games around like this to educate children and adults alike through fun means. I can certainly say I've learned quite a bit about cells within the hour of playing this.

Keep it up!
