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

I got my hands on this game some years ago from IndieRoyale. Loved it the game. Perfect for the casual gamer. When it's released, will those whom own a copy via the IndieRoyale bundle be offered a Steam Key for redemption?

Well then, consider it repurchased. I would grab the non-DRM version but fear I'd forget it's existence. Though I managed to find my way here after 4 years of wistful memories.

I bought this on Xbox Live years ago and was looking for a Steam integrated version, but it seems to be in limbo. Unfortunate.
