What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This an ongoing experimental artwork. You can find the latest version of the project here first before it gets exhibited anywhere else in the world - and you can help test it, improve it, or share ideas on where to take it next.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It's very hard to say at this point - maybe a year or so to make it feature rich enough to be a complete product.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • Multiple scenes
  • Higher fidelity creatures
  • Complete soundtrack
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements
  • Plus whatever else comes up on the way

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently it's a generative screensaver with minimum interaction. A digital version of a wall mounted artwork to help relax and focus.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will keep posting all the updates of the game and the news of it on all our social media. Feel free to reach out with any ideas via our Twitter:

About This Game

Relax to an endless generative artwork in a form of a digital art screensaver. This procedurally generated piece is inspired by a mix of imaginary robotics, and abstract, alien like arachnids, crustaceans and insects. Originally a site-specific interactive art installation, now coming to Steam as an audio-visual experience.
It's an experiment in randomness, mixing Unity pseudo random function generators, Perlin noise, Brownian motion, hypercubes and trigonometric functions, bringing you infinite shapes and colors.

  • Enjoy a company of ever changing procedurally generated arthropod-like creatures.
  • Watch as they create an infinite stream of physically simulated 3D artworks.
  • Poke and drag the digital creatures using your mouse or touchscreen.
  • Rotate around the scene
  • Featuring a generative soundtrack
