Tactical underwater RPG Squids Odyssey will be launching on Nintendo Switch on July 5th

Squids Odyssey is a pretty unique proposition: a tactical turn-based RPG with a twist of fling mechanism. The adventure takes place under the sea, as a murky black ooze is turning once friendly crustaceans into cranky monsters. With their realm under siege, a scrappy shoal of Squid heroes has no choice but to fight back.


But Squids Odyssey is not just about jaunty art style, quirky dialogues and cheerful music. The game offers a challenging tactical RPG experience. Hero classes, stat-boosting helmets, power-ups and the levels environment add a strategic element to the role-playing gameplay. The game features 90 missions for 15 hours of gameplay and the Pro Mode, with completely redesigned missions, doubles the challenge.

While working on Furi for the Switch, we kept thinking that Squids would be a perfect fit for the console” said Emeric Thoa the game Creative Director. “You can use the touch screen or buttons and sticks, the format is perfect to enjoy the dialogues, the art shines on the small screen but you can also blast it full scale on a big TV, and you can take your game anywhere. We didn’t know it then, but the game was actually designed for the Switch! This is definitely our best version so far.

Our Squids games have had more than two million downloads since their debutSquids Odyssey is the ultimate Squids compilation that includes all content previously released, with tons of improvement and tweaks.
