Biohack your cells

Video animation from TEDEd. This is great as a reference. Many good analogies to take from this video to reflect on the script of the game.

Toys

One of my kids have this construction / assembly toy, where they can create beads. I found interesting the look of it, the colorful, kid appealing color palette. They easily can look like small “viruses” or cells.

PVZ INFECTION

PVZ – PLANTS VS ZOMBIES

Some of the character archetypes used on this game can be useful as reference for the MicroShots game. Also, the minion with the robot can be the base for the submersible vessel.

Inspiration from microscopic photography and some illustrations about the microscopic world and cells.

The colors have a very high value, highly contrasted. ethereal or eerie undefined backgrounds and a viscous medium are predominant.

SUBMERSIBLE SHIP REFERENCES

The story an the action happens inside the human body from the perspective of a FPV (first person view). To keep the story consistent, the whole mission inside the human body happens through a some sort of submersible vessel. It will be similar to a robot suit with submarine capacities and control.

The player will be seated see in the main panel of the RoboPod. The RoboPod will be similar to a personal submarine.

Here are some one-man submarine image references:
