Squid Savings is a short, casual, open-world exploration game originally made for a local non-continuous 24 hour game jam. I decided to touch it up a bit, put in Newgrounds integration, and upload it here.

The challenge was to use this art kit by frecklebars in the most creative way possible. Check out his itch page, website and/or twitter for more awesome stuff.

You can download a standalone version of the game from itch.

Music is by yours truly, and can also be found on Newgrounds.

Control scheme

  • Hold the LEFT MOUSE BUTTON to swim towards the mouse
  • Hold SPACE to swim faster.
  • Press the RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON to throw a bomb if you're holding one.
  • Bomb throwing distance depends on how far your mouse is.

If you get stuck, then here's a video walkthrough

way too complex, needs a map system. good game otherwise

not bad


SwiftVector responds:

Lol that is some high praise, thanks man!

Hmm I didnt get the medals. Might be due to a timeout idk. +1 for a minimap or a map accessible from menue. Good game.
edit: It worked after restarting and defeating the last boss again.

SwiftVector responds:

Oh man, that's not good! I hope I didn't break something 😬
If you want to give it another go then pressing "continue" from the main menu after finishing the game will load from the boss chamber. If you do try for the achievements again and you see anything in the web console (something like ctrl+shift+J or ctrl+shift+I), please send it to me!

Otherwise thanks for the rating and feedback 🙂

Great, now I have to spend the rest of the day working out how a squid would ride a bicycle...

Nice and relaxing (most of the time!) with a very pleasant soundtrack. A mini map would help. If not, maybe a name for each area that pops up when you enter it so you can draw it better in your head. Did have a bug where the bomb went through the wall, but it only happened once so it's not really an issue. Overall very enjoyable, good job!

SwiftVector responds:

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I like the area name idea - could be a quicker fix than figuring out how to make a minimap.
