Familiars.io is a minimalist monster-catching game that went online last year, and right now, you can play it inside Twitter. As developer Nigel Nelson tweeted this afternoon, he ported (or in his words, âsmuggledâ) the entire game to an embedded Twitter card. That means that you can play it directly through Twitterâs web interface or mobile app.
The game is built around PokÃ©mon-style exploration and combat in a shared, lo-fi setting. You can wander around capturing enemies to expand your team of familiars, then use them to fight other players (or simply walk around saying âhowdy,â if you prefer.)
just smuggled my ENTIRE GAME into this “video” embed tweet, enjoy https://t.co/tYhXidt2Ur
