Snakelike is a turn-based Roguelike-Snake crossover game: Roguish action with a Snakey twist


Snakelike is a turn-based Roguelike-Snake crossover game currently in development for PC/Mac/Linux. Snakelike melds the simple mechanics of Snake with the depth and replayability of Roguelikes to create a unique strategic turn-based experience that’s intuitive yet deep and tricky.


  • Roguelike action with a twist!

    Explore cavernous, procedurally generated levels filled with monsters and treasure. As you grow longer, take care to protect your segments or risk getting split in two.

  • Snakelike twistings with some roguelike action!

    Eat apples to grow in length. Learn to use your segments to surround and outmaneuver your enemies, but be careful not to get in your own way.

  • Length is life!

    Your Segments serve as your effective HP as well as influencing your Attack and Defense. Each individual Segment can acquire Armor and Spikers which level up.

  • Pattern-based spell system!

    Acquire and cast spells by arranging your body into different patterns. There’s no MP or cooldown period. The only thing preventing you from casting a spell every turn is the fact that you’ll need to re-contort yourself into the pattern.

  • Bosses, Shops & Puzzles!

    Challenge larger-than-(snake)life Bosses in search of powerful Snakecessories, barter your segments for a stack of Armor, or wrap your mind–and body–around some truly snake-twisting puzzles.
