Octo Island is a Game Jam game that my buddy ScruffMuhGruff and I worked on for fun. You are a pirate in search of treasure and have found an island full of treasure-hoarding octopuses. You must fend off the ever-increasing hoards of octopuses and collect as much treasure as possible before you run out of health.

Good luck!


This game was completed in an extremely small time window due to the nature of the project (Game Jam), and as such, may have minor bugs and/or be lacking is some features one might expect from similar games. We hope you all enjoy!

If the WebGL version is not running as well as you'd like (as it often does not), you can download the Windows Build on https://drpresidentgames.itch.io/octo-island for free.

Very great, also, I love the character on a game!


How did you make this game via Unity?

DrPresidentGames responds:

I used Unity's WebGL support to build for the web. Performance-wise WebGL is ass so unless (like me) you are a Unity Dev and only want to make tiny projects to share for browsers, I'd recommend looking at other engines.

Low walking speed and a bit repetitive. Not that bad tho

It's alright. The art style and concept are great. It just gets a little repetitive after awhile. The jump button is in an awkward position. When there are more than two enemies on the screen I quickly died from a constant stunlock from constant attacks. A good concept, just needs more polish.
