Genetic Invaders

Primarily for entertainment: This game is not intended to teach, but rather to simply raise awareness and interest in a scientific concept.

In this action game you play as the RNA polymerase, a chemical found in our cells that transcribes DNA into RNA so it can be understood by the part of the cell that will use the information. Defeat enemies to transcribe them, complete assignments, unlock over 50 different items to customize your ship and much more! This game intends to teach the concept of transcription, as well as touching on topics like amino acids, proteins, biosynthesis, etc.
