Cell Raider

Cell Raider is a video game for young cancer patients that was designed and developed through the Canisius Earning Excellence Program (CEEP), 2013-2014. The goal of the game is to help motivate patients who go through cancer therapy, however, the motivational effects of the game have not been fully studied yet.

The user plays as a white blood cell battling King Cancer and his minions using his trusty T-Fighter space ship, radiation ray, and chemo capsules. 

This game was developed and designed by Brianna Blank, Joshua Smith, and Dr. Przemyslaw Moskal, with help from Dr. Barbara Bambach and Dr. Adam Kisailus.

We are currently in the process of installing the game in Roswell Park Cancer Institute's pediatric playroom.
