Soft Body (Video)
Soft Body is an action/puzzle game by Zeke Virant that infuses bullet-hell maneuver mechanics with a surreal sense of control and style. Players take control of two beautiful, gooey snakes at the same time (one with each analog stick). Together, you use the snakes to paint the world, which continually changes around you, while dodging bullets and popping enemies. Both soothing and tense, Soft Body combines the challenge and twitchy fun of quick-restart action games with a smooth, meditative aesthetic.
