"Every time I find a new house... It starts corrupting itself..."

What is Crab?

Crab was made in two days for Ludum Dare 24, on the theme of evolution.
It is a short, story based game, with a strong emphasis on atmosphere.

You play as a red bubble, trying to find someplace to live in.
But every house you find mysteriously corrupts itself...
