Target Acquired: Tasukete Tako-San: Save me Mr Tako

Tasukete Tako-San: Save me Mr Tako, from Christophe Galati and publisher Nicalis (1001 Spikes, Cave Story+) is inspired by the Game Boy titles of old, with its simple sprites and 4-color palette... but without motion blur, and with color themes extending beyond varying shades of pea green. The game tells the story of a war between octopi and humans, but one octopus refuses to fight, casting off his octopussy armor and diving into the sea to save a drowning woman who was made to walk the plank. The octopus' quest sees him adventuring through platforming environments as he moves through underwater caverns, speaks with NPC's, dons a variety of outfits, gains new abilities, and even moves onto the surface to travel through the human world.

The game is now available for PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, and Switch via eShop.
