Ophidia is now out on Steam

Head over to http://store.steampowered.com/... to buy the ultimate version of the game with controller support and two additional game modes!

Consume all life as a serpentine demi-god in Ophidia!

A decree has been made: all worlds must be purged so life may begin anew. Play as the legendary Norse Ouroboros, sent down from the heavens to cleanse Yggdrasil - the world tree - of all beings.


Encircle your enemies to devour them and grow in size! Each foe behaves differently and offers new challenges. Take down bigger and bigger enemies as you grow longer and demonstrate your fearsome power by leaving none alive.


Travel through five beautiful worlds, each accompanied by a myriad of unique creatures, a breathtaking score, and challenging gameplay.


Without a fight, there is no true victory! Bosses of different worlds possess unique powers. Defeat each one to truly cleanse the world and progress to the next.

It's such a beautiful game - do you ever plan on fixing the achievements on Steam? They're not working at all and it would be such a great game to complete.

Loved this game so much! Just the right amount of challenging! 

its a great game but too short please make it longer!

What a lovely little game, the art style and music compliment each other so well. The game manages to stay just the right side of frustrating in its challenges, and is the perfect length for a few stolen moments.

Good work team, look forward to your future stuff!


Ill try this and I may upload a video to mrcheekymonkey1996 on youtube about this. seems promising!!

Similar idea to SSSS = SUPER SEA SERPENT SIMULATOR. I really like the idea of Ophidia though, definitely impressed with the ancient looks. nice graphics, reminds me of mayans glyphs for some reason

I really like this kind of games but this one is truly unique! The artstyle is amazing (so simple yet so appealing) and the gameplay has a nice twist (compared to games like fl0w etc). It's nice, relaxing and a bit challenging at the same time, but it seems you can beat it at your own pace, which is a huge advantage. Great job! I love it!

really beautiful and fun game! Every details from the creatures to the music is great :D I did a little let's play of it, hope you like it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCLOroBbJ-M

Ophidia v1.0.2 is now available. Patch notes:

  • The snake now starts with an additional segment in every level
  • The Tutorial is now shorter and easier

Look greate! ;)

I loved this game ! There are different creatures at each level and it's really nice ! It's a real challenge to pass levels of this game.

Ophidia is a strange creature. Even stranger than a snake that eats itself to represent the ever-changing cycle of life.

I love the simplistic, ancient Norse theme with the graphics; it gives an atmosphere of ancient manuscripts. The music is beautiful, further adding to the atmosphere. The controls are easy, simply directing the snake with your mouse. It plays like the old school Snake game, but you have to eat your tail instead of enemies or dots on the screen.

In short, I freaking love this game. It's a new twist on the Snake concept. Plus, I love me some games based off of mythology.

Thank you for letting us know! We'll look into it and fix it in a future patch if possible.

Very Well desiged game. Made me feel so relaxed playing it


how do you work the main menu? I got past the first level where you eat the egg things and then I got to the menu and clicked on everything, when that didn't work I pressed every button on the keyboard and still, nothing happened.

Sorry about that! The second, third, and fourth levels start out locked, but clicking the purple circle near the bottom of the screen should bring you to the first level? Let us know if that doesn't work!

I just had the screen resolution to where the buttons weren't actually where they looked like they were, I have gotten it working now
