A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Resquid is a 2D-sideview pacifistic shoot'em up under the sea where you are a little dumbo octopus willing to save its squids friends from the giant bad Kraken trying to eat them in the abyssal depths.
For doing it, you need to shoot bubbles on your friends to help them going up from those dark waters.
Once they are in the bubble, you have to push them up so they can be out of reach from the Kraken.
In this shoot'em up, we try to keep things pacifistic and benevolent on a maximum range, so we didn't make a proper leaderboard as the genre usually offers. Instead, every session you play, you add your personal saving score to a global worldwide score, counting all the squids saved around the planet!

Come and help us save some squids!
Better with controller!
but we love keyboard users too so

Keyboard Controls:

Classic WASD (or ZQSD) or Arrows
Shoot a bubble :
Dash :
C or X [or M so you can play with both hands in any case]

The Resquid Team:

We made this game during a school project in our National Videogame and Interactive Medias School in France (ENJMIN) and this is our first group project for this year.

We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!

Resquid is an amusing little game that can be fun for all skill levels, because it's easy to both do well and make mistakes. The music, what I was able to hear of it, worked well for the overall experience and wasn't too intrusive. It helped the atmosphere without adding tension, despite the impending doom. The art style was nicely done as well, with everything moving pretty smoothly and fitting the underwater cave look. I noticed there was one squid I could not bubble at all but, that aside, this was enjoyable.

Good job on this, devs.

Thanks a lot for all your feedbacks and the video! We're happy you liked it so much! You're awesome! :3


if cyptic hybrid using controller to play them, i use keyboard and this is my first time playing with 26 score.

Hey thank you for playing! We hope you enjoyed it! I know i use keyboard too and it's a bit more difficult! But you did a very good score anyways ;)

Thank you for the squids!
