A Quick Note: This is a polished proof of concept demo. The full game was crowdfunded in February 2017 on Fig.co! We are rebuilding Little Bug from the ground up for a full release in May 2018 on Steam, Itch and Gamejolt for Mac, PC and Linux (more platforms TBA). Thanks for reading, enjoy the game <3
The sun is setting and Nyah is lost in the darkening woods. She is alone after her mom vanishes, but finds strength in a powerful spirit she can control with her mind. She'll need to master her new telekinetic ability to navigate through a surreal world between life and death.
With Little Bug's twin stick control system, you can simultaneously guide both Nyah and her companion spirit. Their connection is a multi-situational tool, allowing creative gameplay and fast-paced puzzles.
Little Bug is best played with the left and right joysticks of an xbox controller on a machine running windows, but if you are using a keyboard, use A+D and arrows in place of sticks. Want to mix it up? Grab a friend and try playing co-op!
