A game of camouflage where you can’t see yourself.

Change colors to hide, dodge predators, and survive intense bosses in the abstract wilderness of stealth non-bullet hell.

Lose the ability to see where you are, and learn to feel and know where you’re going.

History

"... you’re completely invisible, making it a tense, twitchy, but also very zen-like type of affair." - Katherine Castle, Rock Paper Shotgun

"chill bullet-hell intensity diced with fight-or-flight stealth." - David Wolinsky, Kill Screen

"Channel’s nature’s beauty and brutality into a stealth game." - Stephanie Chan, GamesBeat

Features

  • EXPOSURE: Being out in the open is unsafe. When you’re playing well, you can’t see yourself. Learn to know and feel where you are.
  • Intuitive Controls: Move in any direction, and switch between light & dark. Begin as a defenseless bug, but evolve into something greater based on your path.
  • Entrancing World: Over 36 unique branching paths through 11 procedurally generated areas. Psychedelic minimalist design and atmospheric soundscapes.
  • Intense Bosses: Each area introduces new predators and parasites. Though everything is much more powerful than you, everything has a weakness.
  • Daily Challenge: When you play the Daily Challenge, you only get one chance at it. Give it all your focus!
  • Leaderboards: Discover the fastest route, or play to create the largest population. The Daily Challenge has its own separate leaderboard.
