Hello world! Meet the Killer Snails

Cone snails are silent assassins of the sea, using venom delivered through a needle-like tooth to attack prey. Their nerve toxins are so powerful they can rapidly paralyze a large fish—or kill an unwary person. Yet in a surprising twist of nature, deadly venom toxins can become life saving drugs!

Team Killer Snails is developing a game that draws on the inherent fascination of venomous marine cone snails to show what it is like to be a scientist working at the cutting edge of biomedical research.
