Nanocell Squad is an Real-time Adventure Strategy (RTAS) game where you control a group of nanobot-infused immune cells on your quest to defeat the evil and mysterious P.A.I.N and become a hero in a world that sees you as a villain.

Tactics are the focus, it’s up to you to choose

  • What units will you build? Each unit has its own strengths and weaknesses
  • Explore to find upgrades and allies or focus on defeating the enemy? You decide!
  • Certain enemies will attack each other if provoked, or if they gain a certain mutation
  • Utilise unique map features to help defeat the enemy

Your tactics, your choice!

Use genetics to build new units, but enemies can get upgrades too!

  • Enemies can unlock genetic upgrades during the battle, but these can be good or bad
  • How will you react? Kill them or allow bad upgrades to spread?
  • Use genetics to upgrade your structures and also build viruses that you can use against the enemy to generate bad mutations.

This is genetic warfare!

Experience an adventure into a new world where biology and nanobots collide!

  • Explore a strange new world of human biology altered by nanobots
  • Meet colourful new characters on your adventure. Some may even help you in your fight!

Experience an RTS with adventure and a dedicated story...

Big Bosses that test your skills

  • Test your skills against big bosses
  • Inspired by real-life human parasites, pathogens and disease vectors

P.A.I.N has his lieutenants, and to get to him you’ll have to go through them!


NanoCell Squad is inspired by the likes of Tooth & Tail, Dawn of War, Company of Heroes, Doom as well as real science, Saturday morning cartoons, and comics. Check out this demo and let us know what you think!

New Demo (v0.2) Released

News

Your immune system needs YOU! Help a group of scientists-turned-nanocells save a world that treats them like villains.

We’re thrilled to announce the new Nanocell Squad demo is out with updated story, UI, music and more.

Some really exciting stuff has been added that we hope will enhance players’ experience. These include:

  • New unit: mutation virus. You can use this to introduce negative genetic mutations (de-buffs) into enemies

  • Genetic CRISPR upgrade screen in the lab
  • Music tracks added
  • Updated UI
  • Tweaked demo levels
  • Updated dialog & story
  • New NPC (Sparrow Marrow)

We’d love any feedback you have. There are tons more unit / enemy ideas we have (the human body and the pathogens that infect it are truly fascinating!) but we want to get feedback on the core mechanics first.

We’ll be posting some more in-depth features on some of the above in future posts.

Thanks for reading!
