Medimon is a monster-taming game where players catch, raise, and battle monsters that represent cells, organ systems, and diseases. Each Medimon contains mnemonics baked into its design to aid in understanding and learning important aspects of the medical item they represent.
Players traverse the land of Medicorum, in search of Medimon and the missing medication their family needs to survive. But beware, the villainous Pill Snatcher stands against you, and always seems to be one step ahead...
Will you find the medication in time?
Each Medimon carries 2 different types, a major and a minor type. The major types include Healthy, Diseased, and Neoplasms that include Medimon which represent healthy cells/organs (Healthy) or diseased or cancerous versions related to the Healthy version. The minor type represents which of the 9 body systems the Medimon is part of. Each major and minor type has specific strengths and weaknesses to other types.
The Medimon team is led by Dr. Tyler Bland, a pharmacology professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine, Moscow, ID Site. He has an extensive background in neuroscience, cancer biology, pharmacology, and medical education.
