Footnote to tomorrow’s post

* “Really, are you the first cell biology strategy game?” you ask. We do our best to keep up with other science games. Because we love science and we love games.

What’s Taking So Long?

This question rattles around in my head every 30 seconds.  Every other 30 seconds is the other question: How will I get all of this work done?  The answer: focus.  Focus the design doc into a short sweet plan, and focus my minutes to make what is on the plan.

Daily Daily Daily

So I promised to post daily, so here it is. I am working on the storyboard for our simpler and more engaging tablet game.  We think that starting the player with only 1 kind of receptor and one cell will help the player build understanding and therefore confidence with this new kind of game object.
