This is by far the weirdest game I have ever played so far.

I made a video and got also a little bit angry. But that was on me.

Oh my gosh please expand on this. This will become a very big game if you make more about it. I could have played that for days and would have never gotten bored.

To tell you the truth, i loved it ALOT. Especially the atmosphere and the constant dangers making me keep alert.

(+3)

Awesome atmosphere!

(+2)

Very nice, the end is kinda unexpected ^^

(+2)

Dude this game creeped me out a little, I loved it!!

(+3)

Linux version worked perfectly, was awesome!

(+2)

I use to play that small-fish-eats-smaller-fish games on a plug-and-play and at first I thought that's what this was with cooler graphics, but I loved the turned it took! Super creative!

(+2)

Good~!
(+2)

Did not have any idea what to inspect.. and it terrified and entertained me at the SAME TIME

(+2)

Played through this amazing disturbing game and absolutely loved it. I need more of these types of games in my life. Here is my playthrough of it and wow, what an experience!

(+2)

Amazing! Loved it to bits and only wish there could be more! Thank you for Linux support too

(+2)

I actually really enjoyed this game alot! Great animations, looks and sounds. playthrough starts at 16:26 awesome game!

Great game. I'm not sure how hard it would be to have a frame limiter, but I was running between 250 and 3000 fps depending on the area and my monitor only runs at 60! So lots more processing going on than necessary.

Did some more monitoring: my GTX 970 was running around 35%, except on animated cutscenes like the ending, in which it ran at 80%. So that would be the main culprit for wasted power.

The game was truly interesting, it was definitely worth giving it a try.

(+3)

Hello im youtuber starter from indonesia. love your game bro.

(+3)

Just great! Well designed game, art, controls, audio, very well done. It reminded me of Earthworm Jim 2.

(+2)

Amazing game, wierd and scary. Would absolutely love a sequal!

(+2)

excellent jeu !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! j'espère grandement une suite avec Borrus évolué avec lequel on peut marcher !


excellent game !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm really hoping for a sequel with Borrus evolved with which we can walk !

Short, but really good. Art is very interesting, UI is done in a creative but informative way. Game was nothing new, but still exciting with the creepy pink worm. Music was good too.

I agree with other's calls to lengthen the game. It's strange how when you can kill the worm when you're still much smaller than it. Also, I think there's more to go on. The challenge with this is you have to keep designing enemies, which can be challenging on a time budget.

The end is sad, but true to the game's message. Things are brutal down in the sea.

butiful

I liked the unique art and techno style music. I felt like I was playing an arcade game. It was cool, thanks

I love the concept, I think it would make a really cool full length game.
