Siphon revolves around a distant planet not too much unlike Earth. Rich and diverse locations await discovery. Environments range from dense jungles to the rocky peaks and crevasses of grandiose mountain ranges. Deep, dark cave systems perforate the world as well as murky, foul swamps and desolate wastelands. However, unlike Earth, this place’s beauty is being threatened by a parasitic race that intends to upset the very balance of the entire planet. All hope rests in the capable hands of Trella, a plant creature from a remote and peaceful plant village hidden in the thickest part of the jungle.

Trella fights through a variety of environments to hunt down and vanquish the source of the impending doom on her planet. She will use the very plants themselves to defend against this oppressive enemy. She will journey to the depths of the foul creatures’ lair. She will extinguish all who oppose. And after all the dust has settled and peace has been restored, maybe, just maybe, she will return to her peaceful village hidden in the trees . . . or maybe her journey has just begun.

Game Description
Siphon is a 2D side-scrolling platformer that engages you with beautiful artwork and challenging puzzles. Journey through rich and diverse environments to save your village and become a hero. This is a year long capstone project created by the Cohort 4 seniors in the IFDM Program at the University of New Mexico. This incredibly talented group of students has been working hard to bring you a fun, free, interactive experience packaged in an aesthetically beautiful video game.

Looks really enjoyable. The artwork is fantastic. Reminds me of Van Gogh's color pallette.
