History

Concept

Down the Drain started as a lighthearted game about plumbing and exploration. As the game evolved during development, it expanded into a more rogue-lite structure, gaining a series of progression mechanics and a more defined curve of escalating challenge. Over the years the game has changed a lot, going from a simple, carefree experience to something that is much more taxing up front. At its heart, it is still a tiny game about an even tinier snake that becomes more approachable with a bit of effort as you play.

Features

  • Randomly generated levels that give a unique map each time you play.
  • Defeat challenging bosses as you make your way deeper into the pipes.
  • Hand drawn, cartoon style animation.
  • Ability upgrades and unlockable costumes that persist from run to run as you play.
