Description

You are a tiny creature in a dangerous world. Lead your defenseless children to safety. Adapt to new predators each level … until you evolve into a different species.

Survive in an evolving environment by morphing between light & dark forms to camouflage from your predators.

But be careful: you won’t be able to see yourself either. Lose the ability to see where you are, and learn to feel & know where you’re going.

History

"It looks like a Mondrian Möbius strip collapsing in on itself, taking Bridget Riley optical illusions and military dazzle camo kicking and screaming with it ... It’s a mix of chill bullet-hell intensity diced with fight-or-flight stealth. It’s intuitive, but weird." - David Wolinsky, Kill Screen

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.
