Back at PAX East I met with the guys from Mission Critical Studios to see their upcoming game, DrNanoX. It’s still in development, but they got me a brief trailer that shows the opening of the game and a little bit of gameplay footage. In the game, you play as a shrunk down doctor who is dispatched inside the bodies of your patients to manage medical maladies from the inside.
What struck me as rather interesting about this game is that the same people behind this game actually also do a number of commercial medical animations as well and it’s fun seeing how they’ve turned these scientifically accurate animations in to a silly little third person shooter/adventure game. We’ll see how DrNanoX turns out when it’s released, but for the time being, it seems like an interesting premise that I look forward to trying out once it hits the App Store.
