Description

Squids Odyssey is a pretty unique proposition: a tactical turn-based RPG with a good dose of action as you fling your heroes at the enemies. The adventure takes place under the sea, as a murky black ooze is turning once friendly crustaceans into monsters. With their realm under siege, a scrappy shoal of Squid heroes has no choice but to fight back. But the game is not just about jaunty art style, quirky dialogues and cheerful music. Squids Odyssey offers a challenging tactical RPG experience. Hero classes, stat-boosting helmets, power-ups and the levels environment add a strategic element to the role-playing gameplay. The game features 90 missions for 15 hours of gameplay and the Pro Mode, with completely redesigned missions, doubles the challenge.

History

___ MOBILE: We decided to bring the games Squids and Squids Wild West up to date a new mobile version.Our Squids games are timeless, their award-winning art direction and tactical gameplay make them feel as fresh today as they did in 2011. But still, we had made substantial improvements to Squids Wild West that we wanted to bring to Squids and the devices had evolved. There was also the new chapter of Wakame that we wanted mobile players to discover. So we have packaged the two remastered games into Squids Odyssey that includes a new chapter and lots of improvements. ___ STEAM: A RPG like Squids Odyssey also belongs to Steam! It's a challenging game-play with a great depth of content, strategy, and customization. More than 90 levels, 3 complete chapters of the story, 15 characters to recruit: it's more than 15 hours of game play. It can be pretty challenging too, especially with the Pro Mode with levels completely redesigned, that doubles the game duration. ___ SWITCH: While working on Furi for the Switch, we kept thinking that Squids would be a perfect fit for the console. You can use the touch screen or buttons and sticks, the format is perfect to enjoy the dialogues, the art shines on the small screen but you can also blast it full scale on a big TV, and you can take your game anywhere. For the anecdote, 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! But we think the Switch really makes the game shine, and that it is the best version of the game so far!

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.
