Australian indie duo Melting Parrot had our attention with their three-word pitch for their new horror adventure game DAP: “Mononoke meets Pikmin.” And looking over the promotional materials, that is indeed what you get.
In DAP, you’re trapped in a haunted and hostile forest, but you seem to have made a friend — in the form of small, white, ghostlike creatures called Daps. They’ll do whatever you say, and they just may be your ticket out of there. Command the Daps to fight monsters, break through barriers and solve puzzles. If you explore deep enough you might be able to analyze the cause of the forest’s corruption and cure it. Just be careful, as you can’t lead the Daps everywhere. There’s a deadly virus going around, and it doesn’t just harm you — it turns any Dap it touches into an enemy!
Recruit and protect a herd of adorable Daps, working together to battle spine-chilling creatures and solve puzzles.
Explore a lushly atmospheric pixelated world, guiding your Daps through alien environments and alternate realities.
Encounter otherworldly horrors and transcendent beings, slowly uncovering the truth behind the forest’s corruption.
Scavenge and craft to survive the deadly infection.
Grow a garden in the spirit world and tend to it between the levels.
