This is an interactive simulation of myeloma cancer cells inside the bone marrow and the destruction that it causes.

Your task is to prevent myeloma cell from spreading and maintain the health of the bone.

Two kinds of cells native to the bone are here to help you. Osteoclasts (bone resorbing cells) will dig out the damaged bone, making way for osteoblasts (bone building cells) to fill in with fresh bone. The myeloma cells secrete chemicals that attract osteoclasts while blocking osteoblasts, harming the balance between the two.

The team consists of:

Andrei Pambuccian – programmer
Mike Futcher – animator & artist
Andy Chantry – medical consultant
Cassie Limb – agent & grant application writer
