Crab Cakes is a game where you get to take on the peaceful life of a fiddler crab. Your hobby is strolling through the beach collecting various trash items to sketch in your notebook. 

Sometimes you are hungry and so you must scavenge for food. But, as expected, life on a lovely polluted beach comes with its perils. You can never be certain what toxins lerch in those scrumptious food morsels. Eat at your own risk.

Fill your notebook, fill your tummy, hope you don't die.

(The preview character is a reference to Animal Crossing: 18 colors)

(In Chinese literati culture, painting crabs among long blades of grass is a popular subject, this is my take on it)

edit: pulled out two shades of blue, and fixed some empty on the Crab sprite. Now its 18 colors in the detail image.

Nice death animation. The overall concept is creative like ParkerBabyDiaperCompany...said. There was a sub for the merpeople challenge with a similar theme of pollution awareness. Nice stuff.

Thanks. I like the idea of using the preview in a playful way beyond just showing a snippit. Here its kind of like a Cute/Macro perspective -> Realistic/Micro one. Something similar to what they would do in Ren & Stimpy, I think Spongebob does it as well.

I suggest putting the crab in the thumbnail. I like the actual image much more than the preview.

It actually looks like a really interesting, cute and creative game.
