The objective of the Biogames Website has been created as a platform for online gaming, combining the digital and the biological world. Through our respective game settings we aim to enable players to interact in real time with living microorganisms. The microorganisms are observed through a microscope in a laboratory where their behavior is passed on to a computer program that translates their shapes and movements back to the game.
In course of the Biogames project of the Faculty of Media Environments at Bauhaus University Weimar we want to design different experimental gaming set ups for encountering and studying the behavior of microorganisms. In 2015 the project was supported by the Kreativfonds of the Bauhaus University Weimar.
