Infimus is a supervillain RPG where you do crimes, mutate your body into new and improbable shapes, pet walruses and upend the existing superhero-led world order for fun and profit. It’s about changing yourself while being both clay and sculptor. You can become the universe’s strongest, smartest or coolest supervillain despite wrangling a varied cast of like-minded superpowered bastards and reconciling with the fact that, no matter how high you climb in the Hierarchy of Shapes, you will still be a colossal mess.
- Create your own supervillain, from their name and personality to their ultimate aim.
- Rival, befriend and/or romance a varied cast of heroes and villains with such incredible powers as “growing flowers”, “having slot machines for eyes” and “having an impeccable English accent”.
- Retrace the steps of the villains who came before you, in a conflict as old as humanity itself.
- Hunt for the body parts of the greatest superhero the world has ever known.
Mild body horror.

This is my (hopefully successful) attempt at making a videogame which lets you play a compelling, deep and interesting supervillain character in a well developed setting with equally well developed characters. Saw there really wasn’t much like it around, so I decided to try my hand at it.
If there’s any bugs, subpar writing, or any other issues with the game, let me know.
