Impressed by the level of design and polish you were able to put into this game! The intro was also nicely done and added a nice narrative touch.

LOL, I did a vid for this, but forgot to rate it. Very nice job.

Feels super polished, as far as the visuals and audio. I like the witty descriptions too

This one was great! the intro at the start was so good! I really liked that some mutations had drawbacks and it wasn't some sort of "get as OP as you can" game. Great entry!

That UI on the  menus... Oh my god. It reminded me to some kind of resident evil / dead space. What a great ambience for a menu!

The game has a lot of potential. Good job!

What a game! Really liked the concept of this one, the fact that you had to wait and die in the first phase to get to the core evolution mechanic was a good introduction.

I suppose the only flaw I can find is that the player is not rewarded for beating a phase, after you get your first guns you rarely get to evolve any more!

Overall a really good game, impressed it only took you a week.

This is an exceptionally well crafted game in every aspect. The atmosphere you create with audio and visual is very dense. The minimalistic Pixel Art and the sharp UI go very well together. The way you integrated the theme into the gameplay is very clever. The ingame texts gave it even more flavour.

Overall one of the best jam games I've ever played and definitely the most sylish one. Great work.

I recommend everyone to play this gem with headphones.
