Immune Defense Is a Much Geekier Take on the Tower Defense Genre

by Stirling Matheson

“Imagine a tower defense game where the tower is alive and moving. Imagine enemies that change not just their shape but their very chemical composition to overcome defenses. Imagine facing an enemy so numerous that they grow exponentially before it can even be estimated how many there are.” This is how the Immune Defense Kickstarter begins. It’s referring to something you body is probably doing right now: fighting an illness.

Immune Defense is the creation of a biochemist named Melanie Stegman, who wants to not only make learning about the protein structures that are integral to an immune system more fun, but also to distribute part of this game free of charge, so that teachers can use it in the same way that they used Oregon Trail to teach us about dying of dysentery.

Better yet, the Kickstarter recognizes that “there is no more horrible portmanteau than ‘edutainment'” and that “Angry Birds teaches nothing of either ornithology or anger management to those that play it.

Reserve a copy of Immune Defense for $20, or for $10 if you’re one of the next 36 people to snag the Early Bird Special. Stretch goals will open the game up to platforms other than PC and include additional pathogens and defense mechanisms.
