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.


Please make more

You could become a legend. I've always dreamed of a game that was fun and educational. I'm so grateful that you shared this on Newgrounds but you could easily sell this as learning software to schools across the country. This is one of the greatest games I ever played because it is entertaining and people could learn a lot about cells through this experience. I wish you the best of luck on future projects and hope you come into fortune soon.

and educational^^

Level 3

The glitch is not fixed. I collected my first glucose in the level, upped from 46 to 59, and it froze, I was able to do minor things such as zoom.

Simply wonderful

Wow. This was an awesome game. The world needs more of this.

As a major in biology (and a natural science nerd) I was really intrigued by the concept. Really a good way to learn so much in such short time. I had a whole course about this! xD

Anyway, really good work, I would love to see more of this kind in the future.
All the best to you!
