A fun little concept, I can't wait till the full steam game release is available.


Absolutely amazing work. Love it. The music, the idea, how it plays. Really well done. Keep it up


Interesting game, kind of hard. would like more towers/more possibilities. good concept tho!



Actually we are working on finishing the game, here is a example of new look. You may notice some new buildings to create, and there will be more of them.

Stay tuned!

Are you still working on this, it looks promising :)

Yep, we are. Here is steam link with announcement: Protolife on steam Thanks :)

Great job on this game! It took me to realize it was sort of like a tower defense game xD

I especially enjoy the pixel graphics.
