Thanks for putting this in the racial justice bundle so many months ago! Reviewed it for my gaming website and it was quite the unexpected experience. I've never played a bullet-hell puzzle mash-up before! Thanks for the unique game and I especially enjoyed the artistic flair you put into the transitions between worlds.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Soft Body is an action-puzzle game where you control two beautiful, gooey snakes at the same time. In the game, you paint the world with your body, and as you do so, the world changes around you revealing new obstacles and challenges. The action is tense, and the mood and aesthetic is contemplative and calm.
- A variety of modes and campaigns with their own unique levels (about 97 in total): from simple bullet dodging to brain-splitting masochism
- Learn the basics and play through the musical and meditative Soft Game
- Master the art of controlling two bodies at the same time in Hard Game
- Revamped and rethought levels in Hard Game+ which is really hard
Soft Body was designed for a dual-analog stick controller. It is highly recommended that you play the game with one.

The game mentions that it's designed for controllers, including DS4 controllers, and even shows an image of one.. But using a DS4 controller without Xbox 360 controller emulation doesn't seem to be supported.
I have an xbox 360 controller, which is working on other games. When I load it only reads the keyboard / i see no way to adjust control from a menu. Is there something i can do to address it? Even touching the tutorial with WASD looked and sounded wonderful, i wanna play it with sticks.
Hey there. Are you playing on OSX or PC?
A wired Xbox 360 controller should work on PC, but unfortunately, it's not supported for OSX.
worm on a string baby! oh yeah!
There are a bunch of typos in the German language version:
- Eisstellungen(!) -> Einstellungen (main menu)
- Deutsche -> Deutsch (language settings)
- Musiklautstärke only has one 'e' at the end.
Maybe you can fix those. :)
Thanks for the heads up. I'll take a look at making some corrections the next time the game is updated. It's been well over a year since there's been an update so it might be some time; I'm expecting some issues to pop up due to needing to update Steam stuff so a quick update isn't possible right now.
Really fun, like the sound design!
Action game that seriously challenges your multitasking and full screen observation skills. You control two snakes at once that have different tasks in the levels, one needs to push objects, while the other "paints" the level blocks and you need to achieve both to succeed. Its a fascinating and hypnotic concept that slowly but steadily ramps up its challenges from a very meditative and soothing beginning to a rather sadistic level. The game does well to cater to both audiences though, if you want the more meditative, but still somewhat challenging experience, Soft Mode is there to catch you, but if you want the full trip, Hard Mode and Hard Mode+ will bring you to your knees. Would multifail again. 4/5

Hello, I recently bought the Justice and Racial Equality bundle- and the bundle just ended. Am I unable to download the game now that it's over? :(
you need to claim the games you want before downloading (my library > my purchases > bundles)
You probably figured this out by now, but Itch should have emailed you a link to the collection of games from the bundle, which is where you can download them.
Hi there ! Is there a way to play with a DS3 on Mac ? Thanks !
I love this. SO COOL! SO enveloping & emersive! Music is amazing & soundtrack for it! Highly recomend. THANK YOU "SOFT BODY"!
(I used a gamecube controler with a C stick replacement so its the right stick cap)
While using a Dualshock 4, the game stops responding to input whenever I begin a level/die/finish the level. Playing on my keyboard is really exhausting! But I've had a lot of fun so far.
Dude this game feels damn great! Everything is just perfect. Sounds, BG music, the mechanics, gameplay, everything! It's also beautiful in the visuals department. Great job!
