Deoxyribonucleic Adventure

You, the great wizard Deoxy are tasked to retrieve as many lost strands of DNA as possible. The only problem: the monsters in the catacombs are tough! You might need to steal some DNA on the side to help with this one... just don't tell the quest master!

Fight strange blob monsters and retrieve as many DNA strands as you can! Combine with DNA strands to modify your own DNA. It's science! Wait, but you're a wizard... it's sci-fi fantasy!

Great game! I really enjoyed playing this and the music created a wonderful atmosphere in the game. I did collect quite a few dna strands the second time I played through it, the first time I was just running around finding nothing hahah. Overall a very fun game to play :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
