What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“My game is based on real human body, but human body is complicated, the game should have more of them in the ideal version, but it takes time.
This is my first time to make game in this scale, so there might be some thought that my player do not like. I need some feedback from my real player to update game mechanics and vision expression. So that I can have the ideal version satisfied both players and me.
The last is that I make this game on my own, and I make a bet with my family that I could make the game in one year. Times up, ant I do complete the core of my game. It is not the ideal version, but I think it is time to complete the bet.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“There are so many content extensible, so it will continue updating even when the full edition is release. In this case, I will end early access when I though the better vision expression, the convenience guideline, and most of what I want to express have done. This will take about half a year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The early access version contains organs, virus, mechanics I though important.
But the full version should have more. There are lots of virus, pathogen, organs not include. So the extended content is huge, the human body is a complex science after all.
Besides, the vision expression has not been carefully polished, the hitfeel and effects will improve in full version.
The last is guidelines, it is simple now, but this will solve before full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Completed the core part, including:
8 human organs and issues (as game scene)
The blood vessel scene contains 239 arteries and 210 veins to create a real blood vessel map (not visually).
24 genomes (as a set)
203 genes (as specific equipment)
8 endings (currently expressed by text)
14 human cells or proteins (as enemies)
8 active skills (gained by gene)
5 ways to move and attack (required by gene)
Models that have been used can represent what a cell or human tissue should look like (but still need to be adjusted)
Visual performance of item attack, get hit, dead is done(but hitfeel still need to be adjusted)”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will not change. But I don’t want the game looks not worth the price for the players bought forward, I will make full use of the discount time within bounds that Steam made.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“There are so many organs, virus, module not finished. I will keep the character and adjust the game making based on the feedback of the community. We can discuss in QQ group, and players can leave message on Steam boards, or players can leave message in my Weibo. I will publish different approaches in the game introduction.”

Game goal


As a pathogen which infected the human body, you could choose to evolve constantly, you could choose to infect more organ or tissues, you could choose to propagate to a huge mount, you could choose to hide from the immune system... Make your own choice with your act.
The behavior of pathogens in the human body affects the health of the human body and gradually activates the body's immune system, which will affect the ending of the game.

Game character


Most content of the game is recomposed based on book or internet information, there will be some popularization of science.
You could explore the human body in microview.
The pathogen could evolve to many pathogens well known.
The evolve will change every thing, the way of attacking, the way of moving, even the condition of endings.
