An educational game about the miracle of life – a multiplayer drawing experience where players attempt to be the first to grow a healthy fetus. Gameplay was inspired by elements of drawing games and Tetris.
Each player is provided a pre-fertilized egg developed past the stage of gastrulation (available species may vary).
Red nutrients make the fetus grow and develop while green toxins are threats to healthy growth. Yellow growth factors cause the limbs to develop. Players must avoid ingesting the black teratogens to prevent severe abnormalities like phocomelia (malformation of the arms and legs).
The final game art and aesthetics were based on vintage scientific illustrations.
