Microscopya

Microscopya is a science-themed adventure and puzzle game taking players on a journey through the inside of the cell. Explore the fantastical world, solve puzzles based on real molecular mechanisms, customize your character, and experience the beauty and complexity of what makes life possible.

This is the first game from Beata Science Art, featuring music by the talented Jamie van Dyck of Earthside and programming by Atelier Monarch Studios.

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!
