Having just revealed the first gameplay trailer for Dap, the game promises an exciting balance of genres and gameplay concepts for players – with elements that incorporate horror, survival, strategy, and puzzle mechanics, all in the name of making Dap something fresh, yet familiar and well-rounded. The game has an 8-Bit appearance to the horror spectacle, taking a retro feel for the horror atmosphere, and is currently aiming for a release on Steam in Q3 of 2021. For a first look at the trailer and the added features of Dap, check out the game's incentives included below.

  • Check out the trailer for the gameplay below, along with some of the features you can look forward to!
  • Recruit and protect a herd of adorable Daps, working together to battle spine-chilling creatures and solve puzzles.
  • Explore a lushly atmospheric pixelated world, guiding your Daps through alien environments and alternate realities.
  • Encounter otherworldly horrors and transcendent beings, slowly uncovering the truth behind the forest's corruption.
  • Scavenge and craft to survive the deadly infection.
  • Grow a garden in the spirit world and tend to it between the levels.

The game's official synopsis explains, "In Dap, players must guide a group of tiny creatures known as 'Daps' through a hostile and corrupted world. The more Daps they gather, the stronger the pack will become, allowing them to fight otherworldly horrors, unlock new areas, and work as a group to solve puzzles. But the sinister infection that's taking over the forest can affect the Daps too – turning them into twisted, monstrous versions of themselves. Players must move carefully, or else the pack will turn savagely on itself."
