Groupees Bundle and Update
Progress Update
Release date: Available now
Arcade documentary of maze/dot/snake mechanic within changing dimensions, axis locks and the corruption of the system. Collect, grow, avoid your past, find new space, wake up...

qrth-phyl continues the algorithmic, generative and metaphorical arcade game design ideas last seen in previous hermitgames release Leave Home. The game plays in 3D, is adaptive and fuses elements of documentary. Based on a prototype created in the deep south west of Cornwall circa 2004 it has been (re)developed for PC and XBLIG over the last two years. Built with custom tools, self generating code and a modified AY-3-8912 audio chip.

Steam Version
- I will attempt to get a steam key for everyone who's bought qrth-phyl already (bundled or not)
- I will add online scoreboards
- I will add steam achievements
- Seeing as I'll be revisiting the code likely extra surprises...

Get It Now

@Jbulleit97 yes sure if you want one, I don't get buyer info from MS so you'd have to email me

When you say "a steam key for everyone who's bought qrth-phyl already," does that include those who purchased the XBLIG version?
I absolutely fucking love this shit out of this game. I got this way back on IndiegameStand and I still love and play it. 10/10 already. It's a AAA game to me .
