In a world where only the distant memory of human existence still lingers, you play as Clid, a troublemaking, eccentric snail who has just been exiled from his home citadel. Joined by a faithful and talkative firefly, Belu, you will meet a peculiar gang of outcasts and find a place to call home. Among this new group of friends, you will discover a newfound purpose: Exterminating the mysterious slug plague that is ravaging the land.
Clid the Snail is a unique top-down shooter where character-driven narrative and mindful combat take the center stage.
