Save me Mr Tako: Tasukete Tako-San!

Entrant 2018

Christophe Galati


Tasukete Tako-San is a tribute to the Nintendo Game Boy, which got its start for the Game Boy 25th anniversary. The game is a 2D Platformer RPG where you play as an octopus and find more than 50 special powers to help you in your quest.

In a world where humans and octopi are at war, Mr Tako is a persistently helpful little octopus who rescues a woman from drowning one stormy night. A fairy sees this act of bravery and grants him the ability to survive on land, where he can turn enemies into platforms by spitting ink at them. As he travels across the surface world, Mr Tako defies his family and his people to try to resolve conflicts between humans and octopi.
