A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Made by Kevin Tsang and Vivienne Wu 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 could probably add a random wild mutation to really bring out this effect.
The story is that you are a lab technician who is breeding stronger microbes for totally non-nefarious reasons.
- Can you make Amoebros strong enough to escape the lab?
- Gather DNA from yellow orbs and rival organisms, select which Amoebros to reproduce and reach for the edge of the map!
- Zoom with the mouse wheel, scroll with the arrow keys.
- Carefully pick which Ameobro to breed for desired traits.
Fix a bug with the DNA enditor
Added a dev build, only use this if you are experiencing crashes. It's the same game but should allow you to skip over null references.
