Duodenale and Duodenale's revenge
That's a game character just begging to be made!
That's a fearsome one, Ancylostoma duodenale. We learnt about it yesterday at the University, and it would make an excellent candidate for a game because of its itinerary: it crosses your skin, reaches blood, right heart, pulmonary circulation, pulmonary alveolus, bronchia, trachea, larynx, esophagus, stomach and intestine, where it bites the wall and stays hanging and feeding from the blood.
Guess you could always try to replicate an electron microscope.
Btw some bg's I made in gimp
You're right, elecron microscope would be the only way for realistic viruses and bacteria. Their cycle is often focused on a fast reproduction, which fits better in a strategy game. Parasites, on the other hand, have important lonely phases, what is good for an arcade, don't you think?
And wow!, amazing backgrouds! Those would be perfect for some stages, seem very realistic. That plastic effect gives it the appearance of a mucus layer, perfect for respiratory or even digestive tract.
Unfortunately, I have to delay the project for a while due to lack of time, but new ideas are welcome.
