Psychedelic Serpent: Qrth-Phyl

Snakes on several planes

Cornwall-based Hermit Games have prior experience in neon-drenched arcade games with a penchant for algorithmic designs, flexible difficulty and eye-caressing visuals. I thoroughly enjoyed horizontal shooter Leave Home and qrth-phyl, which is the sound of a man dredging phlegm from the back of his throat and then spitting it into a cereal bowl, looks to be a similar take on maze games and Snake. Everything makes sense in this short description until the final phrase lights a bulb in the old brainbox and then smashes it, replaces it with a sentient disco ball and bounces around the walls giggling: “The game plays in 3D, is adaptive and fuses elements of documentary”. Trailer below, along with a free browser Snake game of interest.

Out very soon and looking rather exciting. If the disco ball in your head needs any more encouragement, this should send it spinning harder than a platoon of political pests.

Built with custom tools, self generating code and a modified AY-3-8912 audio chip.

Indeed. But that’s not all! If you want a Snake-alike to play right now, you could do worse than check out Snakes On a Cartesian Plane, which includes as many variants on the arse-dodging structure of the original as anyone could ever desire. Thanks to indiegames.com for that one.
