Slip and slide

Thoopid, the studio behind Snailboy, promises that its new physics-based platformer will change the way you think about snails.
If you've read Uzumaki, by horror manga god Junji Ito, then no doubt you already have a unique opinion about mollusks. Nevertheless, Snailboy's slimy protagonist may still charm you. It's just too bad the game in which he appears is a little slippery.
Snailboy stars Snailboy (surprise!). Snailboy has a bit of a vanity problem that leads him to collect and hoard snail shells. One day, the Sneaky Shadow Gang slithers out of the forests' shadows to steal Snailboy's entire collection.
Beautiful and flawed in equal measure, Snailboy has its charms, but its slime trail can't be ignored
