You are a Despot. A territorial creature on a planet that orbits Syrius B. The only thing it hates more than being called cute, is a rival Despot. It produces young by eating a crystal, only found on its native planet, called orricalcum. Over many eons, these creatures have lost the use of their upper appendages which appear to us as arms. Their younglings have a juvenille acid gland that can project acid pellets at high velocities. When the young depsots reach maturity, they lose their acid glands and can now produce a strong vaccuum to suck in orricalcum(we will be reffering to these minerals simply as "crystals").
When the adults devour these crystals, they are able to produce cubs at an alarming rate. They can also use their suction ability to consume despot cubs from a distance. There is no known nutritional value in despot younglings. This is purely defensive. The adult despots have an unknown, seemingly mental, link with their young. Both the adult's and cub's existence depends on this psychic union. The Adults use it to control, discipline, guide and teach their cubs. It is not entirely selfless. They also use their offspring to protect themselves from rival despot adults.
The graphics look great in this multiplayer only, two player arena battle.
