What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

We want to further develop and improve Sipho with the feedback that we can get during the early access period. Sipho allows almost countless ways you can progress throughout the game and we want to make sure that everything is well balanced before we release the final product.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

We plan to have Sipho in Early Access for around a year.

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

The final version of Sipho will have more content and extended replayability. We are going to add a sandbox mode, that will allow players to fully unleash their creativity. The full game will also contain features and content driven by the community feedback.

The full version will also utilize more Steam features like achievements and trading cards.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

The game currently has a campaign mode with some story elements, where you start as a small one-part creature and progress throughout the game by killing other creatures, gaining resources, growing new parts, discovering interesting part combinations, fighting big bosses, reaching new maps.

There are 4 species, each with different distinct parts that you can combine and build as you want.
8 procedurally generated maps with 4 main bosses in-between them.

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

The pricing will be consistent during the Early Access. It might increase for the full release.

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

We will be actively involved with the community through Steam. We encourage players to share their creations, game breaking combinations, positive and negative feedback. We hope we can address all the issues and make the game better and more fun for everyone.

A Glimpse Into the Future

Happy holidays!
We would like to share what we have been working on.

Aquarium mode
Aquarium will not be limited to just drawing smiles with nutrition. Some of the features that will be available in new mode:
  • Unlimited growth
  • All adapted parts made available
  • Endless mode
  • Spawn your own power-ups and nutrition
  • Spawn hostile and friendly siphos

Don't like others bumping into you? Just make some spikes!
Our goal is to allow your play out different scenarios before diving into dangerous depths. For some it will be a training course, others will be able to carefully plan and test out combinations of adapted Zooids. It caters to creative side of things without constant pressure. This will also allow to play out harder encounters than the base game offers.

About This Game

Sipho is a game that combines eerie real life underwater creatures, insects, body parts with building, combat and exploration. Create your own creature by combining various parts, called zooids. Each zooid specializes in some sort of function– some zooids eat food, others are responsible for movement, attacking other creatures or providing structural support. Most zooids have active and passive abilities. All of the zooids combine into a single creature, Sipho, whose main goal is to climb to the top of the food chain, by using cunning weaponry and various skills.

Collect nutritious food, grow your own creature to become the best of them all. Beware though, there are powerful enemies out there to stop you.

Features
