Microscopya

This is a beta version and we'd love to hear from you! If you would like to provide feedback, please complete the playtesting survey after playing the game and feel free to share as much or as little information as you like. Thank you so much!

Microscopya is a science-themed video game taking players on a journey through the molecular world inside the cell, with hand-drawn illustrations and puzzles based on real scientific concepts. This project aims to highlight the depth, complexity, and beauty of what makes life possible. This is the first game from Beata Science Art, featuring music by the talented Jamie van Dyck of Earthside.

Coming early 2022 to Browsers, Android, and iOS!

I am a biochemist, making games to teach the invisible bits of cell biology.

Walk around in a cell and solve puzzles... the puzzles are neat because as a biochemist, I can tell that they give the player a nice feeling for how proteins and especially big complexes work. If you are learning about the Electron Transport Chain in class, this game will make you an expert! It's great to play on its own as well. Everyone can play it, no prior knowledge required: it is very well designed!

The game is short. I want more, and so will you! Play it in your browser.

And please give the scientist who made it your feedback after playing!
