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.



Loved the game, level 6 annoyed the living hell out of me.

Mind making a movie as to where Jeeves gets killed by the cell because of all his waves the cell became so strong it killed him from the inside! Then an alien pops out and a bear riding a dolphin comes past and yells "sup?"

Excellent work

I can tell you put vast amounts of time into this game, and it shows. This is probably one the best educational games that I think I've ever played and from what i can remember about microbiology its fairly accurate ! Good job!!

Lmfao! Educational, funny, and makes you think!

School tends to lack two of those three qualities. I learned things from this, which is an extreme rarity... THEY KNOW!!

I love it

As a biology teacher I really think this is some good education. Probably going to use this for my new 12 graders next year.

dudes this is awesome. I wasn't expecting an educational game to be so polished. plus I didn't realize it was an educational game before I read the description. And it does teach a lot of stuff :D

Great job guys!
