Meta!Blast is a real-time 3D action-adventure game that puts you in the pilot’s seat. Shrink down to microscopic size and explore the vivid, dynamic world of a soybean plant cell spinning out of control. Interact with numerous characters, fight off plant pathogens, and discover how important plants are to the survival of the human race. The eukaryotic cell is comprised of a dizzying array of molecules, proteins, and organelles. To understand the nature of these entities and their processes across both time and space can be a daunting task. The goal of Meta!Blast is to provide a medium that lends itself to the comprehension of cell and metabolic biology.
