Cell-fie Concept and Characters © Grace Ling 2017 – 2019
Cell-fie is a biology-inspired virtual reality role-playing and simulation game that aims to gamify learning created by Grace Ling.
The name, “Cell-fie” is inspired by act of taking selfies. Players create their own character that resembles themselves, then obtain abilities of different organelles and cells as they level up and complete quests.
Awesome! Can I see a gameplay demo?
Of course! Here’s my latest video:
Wow, that’s so cool. Can you tell me more?
Yes! The goal in Cell-fie is to evolve into an organism. Users start off as an organelle, then can gain levels by doing quests to evolve a cell, then finally an organism. Through this process, they will learn about the biological concepts along the way in an interactive environment.
