Intended soundtrack (original track composed for this game): 

I feel like crabs get a pretty poor deal when it comes to how people treat them; even otherwise empathetic people seem to totally switch off their compassion when it comes to a lot of sea creatures. I know this story is anthropomorphic, but in some small way I wanted to start working towards a more compassionate world for crabs by making this game. I hope you appreciate it! Please let me know your thoughts in the comments, I'd love to hear your feedback.
