In this game, you play as a tiny, aquatic crustacean known as Daphnia. Using the arrow keys, you can explore the environment, eating tiny green algae in order to grow and maintain your energy. If you eat enough, you can produce some cute offspring that will follow you around and also try to eat and grow. Watch out though; there’s a persistent red bacteria that will prey on you and your family. Luckily, there is another friendly crustacean that can ward off the bacteria and shorten its chain. If you happen to die by malnourishment or predation, your oldest child becomes the new Player One. Through this game, learn to live the frenetic life of the humble Daphnia.
