Nested microbial worlds, done for Ludum Dare #38 72-hour gamejam.
Gamejam entry for Ludum Dare #38 (theme: A Small World). All work, including art, animation, sound effects, and code done by myself in under 72 hours.
Play as a primordial bacteriophage on an alien world, and take over various coccus-type microbes. Inject inside microbes in order to alter their traits, then take them over to fight more powerful microbes. Or inject into microbes inside those microbes... and inject into microbes inside those microbes. Levels can nest endlessly inside each other.
