Dysbiosis is an intestinal-tract based shoot-'em-up supported by Wellcome Trust as the winning entry into their "Gamify Your PhD" game jam event.

The intestine is a safe haven for trillions of good bacteria that live in symbiosis with it. They form a delicate community, known as the intestinal microflora. Changes to the intestinal microflora - such as the expansion of bad bacteria or the loss of essential good bacteria - are called Dysbiosis. 

Fire antimicrobial peptides from the intestinal cell wall at oncoming bacteria. Use antibiotics and absorb vitamins. Maintain a healthy balance inside the gut!

The idea of turning your PhD into a game, as was the ask of the “Gamify Your PhD” game jam, seems like a pretty daunting task. The event was held last September, and the winning entry was an intestinal arcade shmup called Dysbiosis, which was then granted some support by Wellcome Trust so it could be finished.

Really fun game, nothing like cleaning bowels with white little dots to techno music =D. Might be a little too easy for (expert) mode though.. 7th place on my first try? I'm just going to assume it was only easy to achieve that high of the status on the LB because of the game being relatively new. Anyhow, I like where the project is going. Would be a great standalone game for the W8 game store. Or on touchscreen devices.

Not bad. Gameplay is good as visuals. But if you lose one cell, you determinately lose because you can't shoot enemies on this track but enemies can break others cells.
