Note: the HTML version has worse graphics due to render limitations, I recommend playing the downloadable version.


So you are joined with an eldritch parasite. Others say it's normal, but are damn tired of it. So you have decided to sneak into a facility said to have some sort of solution to the issue. But it also has anti-parasite devices that don't remove its link, so they will also kill you. Painfully. And the place is filled with those. Will you make it?

Controls:

  • Arrow keys: move / use doors / move parasite
  • Enter / Space: hold to switch to moving parasite

Tips:

  • Standing still wihtout using the parasite will show an indicator of the parasite's status.
  • The guards can only see the parasite if it's away from the character's belly.

I CANT GET INTO THE DAMN DOOR

😊👍

It keeps going berzerk, says it’s going to kill the next guy, but it never does.

same, it says it need flesh or smthn but when i try to kill one by standing on one, the guard kills me, then it kills the guard.

You have to kill the guards form behind with the parasite to calm it down. Just added a post-jam update that shows the tip about this mechanic earlier.

very cool but  I dont remember walking like she did. plus why is she smiling I liked the idea but could be better

I love the aesthetic of this, and it's a really cool idea!

This is super weird. But that's what you were going for I guess.. Well done.

BTW, Would love for you to try my game too.

It is an Action Platformer with unique controls.

Love the visuals. Weird and awesome at the same time.

The guards are like... frogs or something? I dunno but it's haunting. I managed to get to the end :D

Honestly, I made the guards up really fast without thinking much, so even I don't know what exactly they are. 

Congrats on beating the game! I was a bit worried about it being too confusing since the jam comments mention that a lot, but other people seem to be fine with it.

This game was really fun. I was readying myself for a jumpscare the whole time. I normally don’t play games like this, but for the amount of time you had to complete this; you did a great job. 

Interesting concept.

So, does the game end when you reach the scissors? I got the message about the parasite going berserk out of anger, and it left me with this screen.

Yes, the game ends after finding the scissors, I didn't have enough time to make a proper ending. The message is an oversight, it should only appear during gameplay if you don't make the parasite kill a guard after the first warning.
