Hemophilia meets Minecraft™—Introducing HEMOCRAFT, a virtual world for hemophilia patients that lets you:

Craft the components of an infusion kit

Keep an eye on your “factor bar” to make sure you’re prepared for adventure

Prepare to slay the
Ender Dragon!

Share game strategy with your friends and family to help them understand what it is like to manage hemophilia

HEMOCRAFT modifies the popular Minecraft™ game to send players on adventures in a world where everyone has hemophilia.

In partnership with the Entrepreneurial Game Studio at Drexel University, the National Hemophilia Foundation, and members of the hemophilia community, Pfizer Hemophilia has developed HEMOCRAFT to teach kids the importance of staying prepared and sticking to their treatment plan.

Through this simulated environment, kids will learn the importance of being prepared for anything that comes their way—including DRAGONS.

Learn about sticking with treatment

Players gather materials to create infusion kits that help their factor levels stay elevated throughout their adventures

Get tips to stay prepared for adventure

Players meet doctor and nurse “characters” in their quest who help explain the infusion process and share resources players can use to stay prepared for activities

Share what they’ve learned

Specifically designed to be a shared experience—through play, friends and family can better understand what it is like to manage hemophilia

In HEMOCRAFT, you’ll go on an epic quest to slay the Ender Dragon.

It will take courage and determination – and a little help from some doctors and nurses you’ll meet along the way.

What is MinecraftTM?

Minecraft is a game that lets you explore and create a world of your own.

In Minecraft, you search for items and then combine them to “craft” new ones. In HEMOCRAFT, your treatment team will teach you where to find items you’ll use to craft your own infusion kits. Then, you’ll be able to self-infuse and keep your factor levels up in order to stay prepared throughout your quest.

In addition to building and creating, you can go on adventures in Minecraft. In HEMOCRAFT, you’ll go on a quest to slay the Ender Dragon that has been threatening a small village. You’ll need to be brave – and stay prepared – to do it!

Friend or foe?

Players will meet both along the way!

Facing down the Ender Dragon in HEMOCRAFT won’t be easy, and players will need all the help they can get.
Here are some of the people and creatures they’ll meet on their quest.

Nurse Punnyworth

Nurse Punnyworth will teach players how to craft an infusion kit and how they can self-infuse with the kit to stay prepared for adventure.

Doctor Dad

A member of the player's treatment team along with Nurse Punnyworth, Doctor Dad teaches players how rest can keep them on track to complete their quest.

Andrea

A resident of the village of Vale, Andrea can give players advice about defeating the Ender Dragon, including the importance of keeping factor levels up.

Martin

A veteran of the last battle of the people of Vale against the Ender Dragon, Martin can help train the player to defeat the dragon.

Silverfish

Pesky creatures that spawn in strongholds, silverfish may attack players while they gather materials to craft infusion kits.

Skeletons & Zombies

Undead creatures that prefer the night, skeletons and zombies are perfect for players to test their combat skills on as they prepare to face the Ender Dragon.

Endermen

Endermen are spooky mobs that can teleport around the HEMOCRAFT world - and will attack if provoked.

Ender Dragon

The leader of the Endermen, the Ender Dragon has returned to terrify the village of Vale...unless players can stop it!
