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.



This is a pretty good game. VERY educational. :) I love it.

So good, but too short

This is a really awesome game. But I was really disappointed to see it ending. The fun was just beginning to start! When you extend this to more levels and maybe even to more advanced and zoomed out game modes with multiple cells, then this game is going to be what i expected from Spore. Spore was too much arcade and,nya.. This game is the right way!
Awesome work dudes!

Awesome, though still some issues

was stuck on lvl 6 for a long time due to one part Jeeves says he "sprinkles glucose" into the tray. Either it's supposed to say AA or NA or there is a bug in that the glucose doesn't actually spawn. Ended up with 4K+ AA trying to find any glucose in, didn't find any.

Piece of Art

This game is fun AND educational, if only they taught students like this at schools!

Good game

I really enjoyed it. The only flaw I can think of is that when I died in the last lvl, I couldn't replay. I just needed to refresh the page, but it was still a little annoying
