Velocidevorium is a casual 3D snakelike with procedural levels for Linux and Windows.
Take control of a fast-growing serpent and feast on everything in sight (except things that explode of course). And don't run into your sinuous tail. This is a game about eating* from the maker of Retrobooster
. Some game modes are about fast eating, while others are about strategic eating. In fact, Velocidevorium is pseudo-Latin for "a place of swift devouring."
Procedural blah blah blah
You have heard all the usual bloviations about procedural levels, but this game is different. Instead of generating a level and then tossing you into it, Velocidevorium's levels change every frame. The surface you are playing on constantly morphs. Watch the trailer closely and you'll get the idea.
This game's art style is not finalized. It will probably have more of the stop-frame animation look that you see in the trailer, but the models are less settled. Many players like the simplicity of the minimalist blobs currently used in the game, but I can also envision a more detailed world where the serpent is composed of sumptuous papercraft body segments. I will listen hard to player feedback and arrive at an art style suitable for the game.
- Several game modes (exact number to be determined)
- Procedural levels (not the standard kind)
- Game controller support
- A multitude of unlockable levels
- Delicious 3D graphics
- Ice cream!
Velocidevorium is in an alpha state of development. That means its features, gameplay, and artwork are still evolving. There will be game modes that don't yet exist. For example, local multiplayer is on the drawing board but it has not even been prototyped. There is much to be done. If you're feeling ramsasspatorious for this game, I recommend you point your friends to this Greenlight page. There is a chance that it will appear on Steam Early Access, but that option is still under consideration.
