Viruscraft game testing

Started: April 20, 2018, 6 p.m.
Ended: April 20, 2018, 8:30 p.m.


An informal evening to have a look at the viruscraft game progress and tangible interface prototypes - and to think about how this could be developed further. We’ll introduce the project, including a bit about virus evolution/ecology and games design, and then you can have a play – we’d love to have your feedback on possible directions the project could take.

Email us at kernow[at] if you'd like to come along - all are welcome. The event is free and there will be drinks and snacks. The studio building is fully accessible.



The Viruscraft project runs from 2016-2021 and is funded by the Wellcome Trust.
