Hi guys! I'm Silkworm Sweatshop developer of The Wizard and The Slug (formerly Pools of Creation).
The Wizard and The Slug is a story-rich 2D action platformer with plenty of humor. You play as a Slug who joins a mysterious Wizard on a rescue mission. The Wizard will independently support you in various ways, mainly by casting spells during boss battles. Your main weapon is your own regenerating body. Attack by ejecting parts of your body at your foes, quickly regenerate and grow with a button press and repeat. The world has its own mythology and is filled with strange creatures and characters, some of which can aid you in your adventure.
- Action platforming
- Engaging story with a colorful cast and quirky writing
- Story and Arcade mode: Enjoy the story or cut it out and get right into the action!
- A.I companions: In addition to your constant wizard companion, you will meet other potential allies. Fight them, join them or ignore them.
- Charming art style
- Comprehensive original soundtrack: Lots of 8-16 bit inspired tunes with an orchestral flair and brimming with theming.
Please give me feedback, suggestions and advice if you have any. Wish me luck!
