Crab God puts you in charge of curious Crablings who look to you as their new God. Can you successfully nurture them into the next generation of capable ocean caretakers? This tactical-yet-wholesome indie strategy game will task you with growing your colony and safely guiding them across the dangerous depths of the ocean. You’ll reintroduce a healthy and vibrant diversity to the ocean by assigning your Crablings to tasks such as foraging, farming, and of course, worshiping. Life for Crablings isn’t always this simple - with other sea life attacking and pollutants preventing your progress, you’ll have to defend the egg of your successor to ensure the colony lives on.
