A downloadable game for Windows

One day you wake up as a large bug. Other than that, everything is as gray and monotonous as it used to be. Crawl around the building to discover its secrets, or just crawl around your own room. Spew acid to defend yourself against attacks from other insects, but be careful as attacking reduces your health. Once it gets darker, you can return to your room and go sleeping. Each day something changes.

FUTURE PLANS

This current version is a bugfixed version of what I submitted for the "How Have You Been?" game jam with some minor improvements. I think it already conveys relatively well the feelings I wanted to convey. But I had far more ideas than I could realize in the short time. So I intend to overhaul the game completely in the near future. Right now this has a low priority for me, as I'm working on a game for another game jam and also on a few other projects.

The first step of overhauling the game will be Version 1.10. There I plan to introduce a greater variety of enemies, an extended ending and a food system to replenish health.

The next and likely final step will be version 2.00. For this I'm still thinking about how to flesh out the relatively vague ideas I had for this game. I want to introduce more story elements (including more intractable objects, flashbacks, a few characters), puzzles, additional areas that I planned, but couldn't get finished (among other things a city park in the south of the outer area) while ideally still keeping the general feel of the game.
