Incredipede, and the horrors it compelled me to make

Incredipede lets you build creatures by pulling boney limbs out of a central blinking eye, then stringing them together with exposed muscles. It's pretty fun! It's also very hard to make anything that isn't utterly, utterly horrific. Imagine a spider turning itself inside out. Imagine a ten-legged snake having a prolapse. Imagine a malformed starburst of twitching limbs trying to walk. These are things you will see. These are things you will create. It will be on your conscience.

Incredipede creeps onto Steam next week

Creature creating puzzle game Incredipede is finally preparing for a Steam launch. There's a new trailer, plus details of the added extras being packed into this updated version. So here's your challenge: can you craft an animal with enough limbs and muscles to click on this post and see them? What's that? You've already evolved a perfectly good finger for the task? Good enough, I guess.

Incredipede: first look at the unsettling and beautiful creature constructor

Incredipede is a game about life and feet,” explains Colin Northway. He’s the nomadic creator of a genuine god game – a mash-up between Spore and World of Goo, where you design creatures that jump, climb, shove, swing, dance, or just jiggle their way to the end of the level. You start with a blinking eye, named Quozzle. By clicking and dragging, you add hairy, bristle-covered limbs to his torso one at time. Then you hook them up with muscles, which fire alternately, creating movement. Once you think your creation is complete, you can unleash your Frankenstein’s monster on the world.

Incredipede's terrifying leg-monster shuffles menacingly onto Steam today

After winning over Greenlight with its many legs and its creepy, singular eye, Incredipede has finally arrived on Steam [UPDATE: Here it is]. Or it will in a bit, presumably when the Americas wake up and are mentally prepared to deal with the Cthulhian monstrosities you can conjure up in this ungodly creature-building game. I mean, just look at that thing up there. I don't know whether to put it out of its misery or hide under the covers until it goes away. In addition to adding a bunch of new features (details below), the Steam version of Incredipede will launch with a sale, knocking $5 off the typical asking price.

Incredipede interview: how lizards and subways inspired the bohemian globetrotting devs

Two years ago, Colin Northway - the extravagantly-bearded, globetrotting creator of Incredipede - sold everything he owned except for a backpack, some clothes and a laptop, and got on a plane with his wife and a plan: to travel the world making indie games. Since then, he's been to Turkey, Czech Republic, Italy, Malta, Scotland, Paris, British Columbia Canada, Honduras, Costa Rica, BC (again), Tokyo, The Philippines, Hong Kong, Greece, Scotland (again), and France. I caught up with Northway to ask about the inspiration for creature-constructing puzzle-game Incredipede, how travelling helps him make better games, and how to stay productive while working within a stone's throw of a tropical beach. You can read more about the game in our Incredipede preview, vote for it on Incredipede's Steam Greenlight page, and even pre-order it at Incredipede.com.

Incredipede trailer pulls limbs out of an eyeball and makes it walk in a creepy but awesome way

Incredipede is an indie puzzle game that "celebrates the vast diversity of life in the world" by letting you pull bony limbs out of a giant green eyeball, and then fasten muscles to its twisted joints to create a monster capable of traversing 60 increasingly perilous levels. It's disturbing and strangely beautiful, and I can't wait to play it.
