A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
BENDYWORM is a platformer with a twist: the entire world bends and twists around you as your progress through the level. Why? Because you're inside of a gigantic worm, and worms are bendy.
The game is made for Github Game Off 2021.

I want to run the game in windowed mode, not in fullscreen. How?
Press [ESC] to open the pause menu, then toggle "Fullscreen" to run the game in windowed mode.
The game runs slowly. What to do?
In the main game, press [ESC] to open the pause menu. Then uncheck "Fullscreen" to run the game in windowed mode, and reduce the size of the window. This makes the game run at a lower resolution, which should increase performance on lower-end GPUs.
Alternatively, if you want to play the game in fullscreen mode anyway, you can reduce your desktop resolution by right clicking the desktop and selecting "Display Settings" (e.g. if you're on a 1080p screen, you can drop down the resolution to 720p and it should run much faster)
I beat the game and I want to replay it. How?
After watching the credits, enter the main game again, press [ESC] to open the pause menu, and then select "Delete Save and Start Over".
- Gamepad input prompts are missing, only keyboard input prompts are shown (see above for gamepad controls)
If you like the game, consider buying the game or buying me a coffee:

Nice game, start of last level was a bit harsh :-)
Really loved the concept and the art. My only criticism is that the dialogue starts every time when the level is reset. A skip dialogue button would be handy. Otherwise a really awesome game. Keep it up bro ;)
