Baris Tumerkan’s OCTOPI started out as an attempt to adapt the great qualities of the ancient game of Go into an original casual strategy/action game for the iPhone that is instantly playable. After many trials and errors, the required lightheartedness was found in an unlikely place: the mundane game of Snake. For the first few months of its life on the App Store, the game was mostly a proof of concept. This is about to change with the imminent update to version 1.9.
