This is so clever! Immediately reminded me of Carrion but this has a deep strategy that only roguelikes can have. The multi-tentacled combat is very original, inspired, and fun in both a tactical and absurd way. I also love how the tentacles holding things just drag behind you through the corridors.
You are enjoying a nice dank day as a Lichen in the dungeon when and adventurer polymorphs you into an octopus! Seek revenge against the fool who did this to you.
Octorogue is played as a classic roguelike, but you have tentacles to interact with your environment. Throw items recklessly! Consume everything in your sight! Topple over your enemies like dominos!
At level 1 you are quite fragile, make sure to keep your distance and avoid tanking hits right away. The boss appears at dungeon level 3, and he's a bit tough to beat. Make sure you bring a dagger or a sword if you can find one to stand a chance against him.

Very interesting movement mechanic. Makes you think a bit more carefully about your next position. Enjoyed imagining the octopus crawling around and hucking rocks at stuff.
