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.


It's like Biology all over again

The art is great, the gameplay is smooth and I didn't notice any glitches. I admire the details about the parts of the cell; it really adds into the story and makes you feel more involved with saving the species, per se. At some points I got confused when I had to fend off viruses, but that was just me and my struggle with defense games. Really awesome job guys!


I had dreamed of that game!

2 Hours Of this > 6 months of biology class

Great game, I've honestly learned more from this game then I did from bio class. Not to mention extremely fun

Thats the sound of the doors falling off their hinges as you kick them down and enter the world of big time game development.

Amazing game. Skillful blend of really good fun and learning. Storyline - one of the funniest ive seen. All sensory aspects catered for.

Congratulations on your success. Now grab a coffee and keep em coming!
