Dysbiosis is an intestinal-tract based shoot-'em-up supported by Wellcome Trust as the winning entry into their "Gamify Your PhD" game jam event.
The intestine is a safe haven for trillions of good bacteria that live in symbiosis with it. They form a delicate community, known as the intestinal microflora. Changes to the intestinal microflora - such as the expansion of bad bacteria or the loss of essential good bacteria - are called Dysbiosis.
Fire antimicrobial peptides from the intestinal cell wall at oncoming bacteria. Use antibiotics and absorb vitamins. Maintain a healthy balance inside the gut!
