Pleiotropy

This game was done together with Bjorn Ostman and focuses on the biological phenomenon that genes and proteins can have many different functions in different contexts. You have to collect green spheres which make you bigger and let you collect better, but at the same time a bigger paddle let’s you hit the bad spheres (red) easier as well. I think it illustrates rather well the dichotomy of pleiotropy. Play it here.
