Ludum Dare 38 (Small World) – Amoebros


We made a game for Ludum Dare 38 (Small World)

I wanted to make something with an incremental / generational aspect and the small world theme kinda lends itself to microbes and so Amoebros were born. This is the kind of game that only really comes together right at the end so I wasn’t even sure if the game was going to be any good until it was done. Hopefully someone will enjoy it 😉

The game features something like 20 different patterns and you can affect the look and colour of your creatures by selecting which ones to breed. I put in the odd wild mutation that looks totally different so players can pick a new look easier, it also shows which Amoebros express more varied traits as well.

The story is that you are a lab technician who is breeding stronger microbes for totally non-nefarious reasons.
