Indie dev duo ‘Melting Parrot’ have released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming debut Dap, showing off the game’s unique blend of responsive combat, unsettling exploration, and group survival mechanics. Dap is a horrifying action-adventure game that’s as sweet as it is sinister, coming to PC via Steam in Q3 2021. 

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.

Dap balances responsive and fast-paced twin-stick combat with light survival and crafting mechanics to create an engrossing horror experience, with wonder – and terror – around every twisted corner.


  • 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. 
  • Dap dap!
