Strive for victory in three ways: Shrine, Shogun, and…Poop?! Master multiple mounts to outwit opposing fungi, such as the merciless Mantis, equipped with razor-sharp claws to cut down the competition. Win three of the following Victories to emerge triumphant:

  • Shrine Victory: Command Minions to collect enough small orbs to offer as sufficient tribute to surrounding shrines. Watch for danger and move quick! Minions respawn indefinitely, so going for the Shrine means playing it safe.
  • Shogun Victory: Eliminate the opposing Shogun three times. Control the mighty flying Shogun and cut down any adversary lower than them with its samurai sword. High-risk, high-reward: fatal missteps bring the other team closer to their own Shogun Victory!
  • Poop Victory: Force foes to smell the stench of defeat by mounting a Dung Beetle to slooowly roll a poopy payload to the opposite side of the map. Winners often report this as the most satisfying way to win. Losers often claim it’s the most humiliating.

Each single-screen map makes all characters and strategies visible at all times. Beyond quick reflexes and witty tactics, Shroom Siege also encourages communication and coordination. Gather friends locally or play online, forming two teams of four with cross-platform functionality.

The original version of Shroom Siege was created during the 2023 Global Game Jam and it taking cues from Killer Queen Arcade game, but for its visual style remember us Inkulinati.

Shroom Siege will be available in 2025, with the Steam demo launching on Tuesday, August 6.
