An alien civilian, now helpless captive on the brink of death, forms an unlikely bond with a deadly parasite, the only creature that could keep them alive. Together their symbiosis brings to life a new predator, eager to escape the complex.

Fight for your life against the facility security and devour your fallen enemies in an attempt to leave the facility. The only chance to get away is to have enough power to pass the gates that secure the starport.

Symbiosis is 2D turn-based strategy game.

The game starts with you being in a lab. You see a soldier that brought you in and a scientist.  Your turn started and you need to think about what you can do. You can move around or make actions. But be careful because enemies are always on your tail!

Your turn ends when you move 2 tiles or perform an action. Then enemies will move and select some tiles to attack the next round.

You win the game by reaching an escape ship and feeding the parasite that keeps you alive.


You can play our game using mouse or keyboard. To play with keyboard:

  • WASD Move
  • E attack
  • F feed on an enemy corpse
  • R place a mine
  • SPACE next turn

Both attack and placing a mine need a direction in which they should be performed.
If using mouse simply click on the icons in the UI that correspond to the buttons.
