Description

Squids Odyssey is a unique mix of action strategy and RPG: build your team of Squid heroes for epic turn-based battles against corrupted crabs and shrimps! Steev, Vahine and the rest of the Squids are in danger! An infectious black ooze is corrupting their world. The band of unlikely heroes need to fight back to save their underwater kingdom! Squids Odyssey is not just about gorgeous cartoon art, jaunty music and humorous storytelling, the battles also provide a deep challenge as strategy and skill are required to use the environment, the Squids’ strengths, and enemies’ weaknesses to victory!

History

Being big fans of Nintendo we always thought that Squids was a perfect game for their platforms. We actually showed it to Nintendo before its release on the App Store! With the two first chapters of our Squids' odyssey done, we decided to make a beautiful game for 3DS and Wii U, merging all the content of Squids, Squids Wild West, with an extra chapter to continue the story and lots of improvements.

Features

  • More than 15 hours of gameplay, 90+ levels and 15 Squids, plus the Pro Mode!
  • Recruit a unique team of Squids in four different classes: shooters, scouts, troopers and healers
  • Customize your party with ability-boosting and crazy looking helmets
  • An epic story with giant turtle rides and heroic boss battles
  • Discover the Squids' legendary world through gorgeous levels.
  • The game is in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese

About THE GAME BAKERS

Boilerplate
The Game Bakers is an independent video game studio founded by Emeric Thoa and Audrey Leprince. To sum it up they often say that they make games like they cook food: with a lot of love. They want to create that experience that players remember, that they will have fantasies about long after the game is finished, and that makes them feel alive and energized. The studio is based in Montpellier in France – right above a bakery – but they work as a "studio in the clouds" with a team of collaborators around the world.
