The Photocyte is the first cell type encountered in the game. It can convert the energy in light incident on it to chemical energy.


The Photocyte is a cell full of little stains and dots that look like Chlorophyll. It feeds from light. This cells is one of the three main cells used for feeding an organism, the others being the Devorocyte and Phagocyte.

The Photocyte is a high consumption cell with a Energy Usage Coefficient of 2.5 ng/h.


  • This cell has the highest energy consumption of all cells.
  • Even though it's the first cell encountered and is unlocked since the start of the game, it appears third on the list of Cell Types in the Genome tab, right below the Flagellocyte.
