In Nektonik you control a microscopic and frail aquatic organism called a Nekton, and you follow its most amazing journey as a species. One generation at the time, you assist them in surviving, modify their genes and customize their unique anatomy. Will you evolve the mightiest Nekton?
In each level you need to grow your Nekton to a specific size. To grow larger, you can defeat other organisms and capture the parts they leave behind. Once attached to your Nekton, these parts integrate completely - some offer more speed and agility whereas others grant you new abilities.
Once a level is completed, the Nekton you played with is left behind. It has gone through its life cycle and was just a link in the long chain of life. It must now pass on its genes to the next generation, making it possible for its descendants to thrive and eventually dominate the world of Nektonik.
In the Gene Lab, you can genetically modify your Nektons. One generation at the time, you assist them in surviving, modify their genes and customize their unique anatomy. The design of your Nektons drives the way how the tiny organisms swim and behave. Customize them the way you see fit!
The world of Nektonik is non-linear and divided into linked stages that can be revisited over and over. These stages hide many secrets, some have puzzles to solve whereas others have areas that can only be reached as you gain new abilities. Much larger foes await the player later in the game and unlock new Nekton types. These new types offer new features and abilities, and can even be bred to produce stronger Nektons not otherwise available.

The alpha features eight fully playable levels and the gameplay mechanics are in place. The game also automatically saves your progress! Of course this is a work in progress and you will experience bugs and incomplete content...
This version uses the Unity Web Player, so make sure you install it first (Chrome users may have to use some workaround... sorry). Once the game is loaded, you can right-click on the Unity window to switch to full screen. Graphics are a bit rough in places and this is due to this optimized build, the final release (full HD) is a lot sharper overall.
All the feedback is welcome, be it positive or negative. I still think the controls could flow better, but please don't hesitate to let me know what you think.
Thanks for helping and supporting the development of Nektonik :)
