Description

Marta, the world's smallest snake plumber, is on a mission to clean out the drains in a flooded town. Swimming her way through the half-sentient goop, Marta's job is to clear the blockage, retrieve any lost items, and make it through the maze of pipes in one piece!

History

The rough idea for Down the Drain was conceived off of a comment of a friend made during the development of another smaller project we were working on. After that project had concluded, the idea started to get more fleshed out more, and a "proof of concept" build was made. Once that was created and the game began to get developed for real, Down the Drain began to evolve from the initial idea, beginning to turn more into an actual game. After a few months of development, Down the Drain was shown off to the public for the first time at Maker Faire Detroit 2014. Since then, the game has grown and developed even more, becoming deeper and more complex.

Features
