is an exploration based action platformer in the vein of games like Castlevania, Metroid, and Cave Story. However, unlike most other games in this genre, the gameplay is driven more by plot than by free-roaming exploration.
Graphics and engine are completely original. The plot revolves around a character named 'Ip' who must escape from the underside, and maybe prevent the world from being destroyed while he's at it. Characters, plot strands, and dialogue are heavily inspired by Earthbound, and are quirky, whimsical, and sometimes a little strange.
The gameplay is very fast based, a lot more akin to games like Mega Man or Metal Slug rather than Metroid or Cave Story in terms of pacing.
