A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
Incompatible Species is a story about the progression of a specialized (read: self-important) pest control unit. Despite the mismatched nature of each member and the world around them, what keeps them all together runs deeper than the surface.
Human life has experienced a prosperous boom worldwide. Living conditions are above the minimum on a much broader scale, previously unsolved cures appear one by one, and surgical repair is as simple as spraying yourself with a specialized powder.
But, of course, there's always room for even the tiniest improvement. Especially when these critters that can mutate themselves at will are popping up in unexpected cracks. When that happens, someone has to do the grunt work. Spotting an opportunistic foothold, Lucius Godwin forms the Exterminators and gets to it with his… companions?

I'm blind it took me 2 years to learn how to use my devices independently. I love gaming but often there's not any or many accessible games I can find and play. I was just wondering since it doesn't say anywhere if there's accessibility options on the game after you download it? 100% OK if there's not but I just wanted to ask before downloading. Even if it's not accessible I'll look for a let's play of it on YouTube so I can experience it that way as well. The game sounds amazing and I definitely do want to play or experience it in some way. Please reply when you can. Thank You!
In the options there is a tab for accessibility options, though most of those are for visual-related options... there is also self-voicing for non-voiced dialogue/narration that can be toggled with the V key. I'm not sure there's a way for that to read out menu options, though.
Thank you! I'll definitely give it a try. Thank you for answering my question. It helps a lot.
I played this game, I really enjoyed most of it. It has been almost a year since I played it and I forgot a lot, but. For people who didn't play yet I would say it's a cohesive story. I want to say, this game has a lot of what you would call "emotional scenes". It also has action, it has funny scenes, sci-fi stuff, slice of life stuff, funny moments, backstories/character-stuff, it really has many things, that are integrated within the main plotline. I guess you would say it's a very full story. One thing that stands out to me, is, I feel like, the characters feel very round, human, and I think their human-ness and their emotions are very palpable. It's the opposite of some anime VNs or dating sims where it's like, everyone acts like a stereotype. I think you would call them like, complicated characters with different motivations.
Anyway, I think it has kind of the feeling of a "modern" story, very tied to daily reality. Although the setting has advanced tech and stuff, many of the emotions are things you have felt before and things you could probably relate to. If anyone has played Lucid9, I would say that the IncomSpe characters give you way more of that human-sense than Lucid9 characters, which give you more like an anime-character sense. Lucid9 feels way more like an anime/light novel, and this feels way more like an English-written story. I don't know how to describe it, but the way the characters act and how they are written feels like something you would read in an English novel or piece of media, it's totally different from anime VNs. Many VNs, they are inspired from Japanese media and anime VNs, so they kind of feel similar (for example DDLC which is obviously inspired on prupose). But this is different, is what I'm trying to say. The style is different from Japanese VNs, I think.
Also when I saw DJ Horn voices Lucius, I had kind of a whaat moment. Because Lucius is my favorite character in IncomSpe, DJ Horn is also the route writer for my favorite character with a route in Lucid9, Airi.
Thank you for the analysis! I'm glad you enjoyed IncomSpe for those reasons.
Besides the "modern" feelings mentioned, I'm not sure I intended to write the characters one way or another, but I did want to give them that human-ness mentioned. Happy to hear it came off well enough in that regard.
It should be safe!
I love the game but can you make a dating type one?
Hi! Currently there's no plans for it, but who knows what the future holds! Maybe after the main story is done and over with. Thank you for your interest!
Pi-Zan is the best person ever!
Only excited to show off more of them and the rest of the cast!
