THE ART OF SCIENCE
is having fun
The Enemy Within is an educational strategy game designed to inform teenagers about the genesis, evolution and progression of cancer. The player tries to control the spread of mutant cells and, in doing so, experiences exactly why the mutational burden from various risk factors is so bad.
This project is a collaboration between Dr Adrian Saurin of University of Dundee, and Dr Robin Sloan of Abertay University. The project has received support from Scottish Crucible, the Nine Trades of Dundee, and the Wellcome Trust.
It is recommended that you use the keyboard controls for navigation while playing in-browser.
W: Pan up A: Pan left Q: Zoom in
S: Pan down D: Pan right E: Zoom out
(*if you have a mouse you could press the wheel and move to navigate, but still use Q/E to zoom in/out).
