    Squirrel Eat Squirrel is loosely based on the game "Katamari Damacy". The player controls a small squirrel that must hop around the screen eating smaller squirrels and avoiding larger squirrels. Each time the player’s squirrel eats a squirrel that is smaller than it, it grows larger. If the player’s squirrel gets hit by a larger squirrel larger than it, it loses a life point. The player wins when the squirrel becomes a monstrously large squirrel called the Omega Squirrel. The player loses if their squirrel gets hit three times.

    I’m not really sure where I got the idea for a video game where squirrels eat each other. I’m a little strange sometimes.
