Squillamorph is an action-packed 2D pixel art platformer. Gameplay consists of wave-based combat action, with the player fighting off a range of interesting and dynamic enemies. The game’s story follows a small parasitic creature composed of a gel-like substance. Created for an unknown purpose, the creature finds itself pursued by countless enemies through a hostile world. It only has one defence; it can ‘Infest’ the enemies it faces, taking control of them. Will it discover its purpose, or will it succumb to an endless fate?
The game is animated using a mix of traditional and procedural animation, which brings its world to life. This creates emergent combat gameplay, which is different every time.
The story is told through the encounters and fights that take place, which allows for gameplay to take precedent if players are not interested in the story. However, for those who wish to learn the deeper lore of the game world, there will be secrets to discover and mysteries to unravel.
Waves of enemies will do everything they can to destroy the parasite. Use its 'Infest' ability to take control of enemies and use them to fight back. Killing enemies will provide points, which can be used to unlock the path forward. Progress through the hostile world and discover new creatures to use in the seemingly endless battle.
Other creatures in the world are savage and unrelenting in their efforts to destroy the parasite. Survival will be tough, and fast thinking is needed to out-manoeuvre the enemies. Survive fights against larger, more monstrous creatures and be rewarded with mutagen upgrades. Choose from a selection of mutagens and receive upgrades to the parasite’s abilities that will give it an edge over its adversaries in combat.
Why was it created? Why do other creatures seek to destroy it? Why is it being observed at every step of its journey? What is its purpose? Questions such as these can only be answered through curiosity, determination, and discovery.
