Another Crab’s Treasure is a soulslike adventure set in a crumbling underwater world. As Kril the hermit crab, you’ll need to wear the trash around you as shells to withstand attacks from enemies many times your size. Embark on an epic treasure hunt to buy back your repossessed shell, and discover the dark secrets behind the polluted ocean.

What To Expect from Another Crab’s Treasure

The reveal trailer gives players an insight into what to expect from the title when it comes to both combat and the in-game world. In Another Crab’s Treasure, Players will be tasked with exploring an underwater society that lives in garbage-fueled prosperity. As Kril the crab, players must overcome the dark forces behind this pollution. Along their journey they will obtain a variety of interchangeable garbage, which they can use as a shell to help them on their quest.

“I’ve had this game idea about a hermit crab that wears trash as a shell for like 6 years and nobody would let me do it.” said Nick Kaman, Art Director at Aggro Crab. “They would say things like ‘We don’t have the budget’ or ‘You literally just drew a picture of a crab on a paper towel.’ That’s when Kowloon Nights came in with a fat stack of cash and bankrolled this dumb game about crabs eating garbage and fighting other crabs during the end of the world. Now Another Crab’s Treasure is real and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. I love this game.”

“We set out to create a game inspired by the challenge of games like Elden Ring or Sekiro that’s a bit more approachable to people who suck at those games while still respecting the challenge and threatening atmosphere that makes them so enticing. We think there’s way more room for innovation in soulslikes than is currently being realized—it doesn’t have to be a grimdark medieval castle every time! Everything from our whimsical graphics to our over-the-top soundtrack to our character-driven storytelling serves to expand the genre in ways we think both long time fans of souls games and new players will appreciate.”
