Seadelphica's Tumblr integration influences a dolphin's spiritual development

Seadelphica, a story-driven runner with multiple endings and Tumblr integration that affects the outcome of the game, is in development for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.

Seadelphica centers on the spiritual and physical development of 'Jengu' The Black Dolphin who is the product of a scientific experiment for inter-species communication. Players control Jengu in his quest for "cosmic love" as they chase and evade enemies and carry out tasks. The final game will feature eight bosses and 24 levels over several different environments.

According to the developers, the game's Tumblr feature that integrates newsfeeds and pictures to in-game "soul screens" will have a direct bearing on the game. "Through these pictures, that can influence the outcome of the game, 'Jengu' the dolphin can learn the inner world, feelings and emotions of people whose avatar is in the real world," the game's description reads.

The developers launched a Kickstarter campaign with a $50,000 goal to fund the development of Seadelphica. Backer tiers range from $5 for the game to $10,000 that includes all backer rewards and a creator credit.
