A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

As the parasite, nothing else matters as long as you reach your goal. Infect, possess and control your victims. Hide within your hosts and use them to reach your objective.
But beware! , the hosts will die from the putrid Infection when you leave them, so plan your moves to infect them at the right moment, in the right order.

Really nice game, maybe rogue-lite. I think the game idea is related to Eatvolve https://papadar.itch.io/eatvolve

Thank you so much! Hope you made it to the end, I will definitely check Eatvolve out.

What a a great idea for a game. I did a video and had 20 minutes play and really enjoyed.  I did have a problem taking over some of the creatures, I had to spam the x button on my controller but finally go there and some of the gaps. Wow, all in all a great play and well done DEVS.

Good Luck

You don't know how amazing it is to watch people play your game! It was a very funny playthrough, and I'm aware some people have been experiencing trouble with the infect mechanic. The problem i have to fix is that the characters must not be overlapping but rather facing eachother, that means the last movement you make before infecting has to be in the direction of your target. Sorry if it felt unfair at times, thank you for playing!

Edit: Aaannnd it should be fixed! thanks for the feedback!
