Fungal Invaders installed at Aberdeen Science Centre!

2016 has been an extremely busy year for Game Dr.

Not only have we extended our team, we have also collaborated with Scottish based developers Monocool Interactive to produce a series of educational microbiology apps for Professor Neil Gow, University of Aberdeen.

The first game of the series titled Fungal Invaders, uses the mechanics of Space Invaders to educate players on antifungal drugs and how they are used to kill different fungal infections.

This was an extremely beneficial collaboration - Monocool brought so much diversity to the creative process and taught us a lot on popular game play mechanics and the development process.

To bring the game to life, University of Aberdeen recruited an innovative installation company - FifeX - to create an old school arcade exhibit where the game was installed.

The Fungal Invaders arcade exhibit has now been installed at Aberdeen Science Centre!  Get along now and beat the high score!
