Germophobia is our second place chanpionship award winning game for the Oregon Game Project Challange 2.0. In Germophobia you play as Phred, a resident of Pherdyville. Noticing that the town has turned into a breeding ground for waterborne illnesses, Phred decides to get help from his neighbor, Maddi the mad scientist. She uses her shrink ray to show Phred what is really going on. After seeing first hand the severity of the problem, Phred and Maddi team up to combat the illnesses at their source using a microscopic ship and a multitude of weapons.

Germophobia is an action/shooter game in which you fight different water born pathogens in different locations. At the beginning of every level the player selects two weapons: a super weapon that affects the environment and makes pathogens easier to kill, and a regular weapon which is used to shoot at the pathogens. The player fights one type of pathogen per level, gaining points to buy additional weapons for later use. Every weapon affects each pathogen type differently. A player can consult short summaries at the in-game “library” to learn more about what illnesses their opponents represent, as well as gaining helpful hints on which weapons will work the best.
