■ About the Game
Set inside the body of an unknown creature on a faraway planet, Petit Petit Petit brings a grotesque-yet-fresh new face to the realm of rogue-like games as players choose from a variety of characters to play with, each with their own unique equipment and abilities, and set out to save the host organism by decimating hordes of enemies! Using zany attack skills and an accompaniment of fun cartoon-like onomatopoeic words, players must survive each chaotic invasion to save the day! As players progress, they will unlock new characters and skills providing a near infinite number of play styles and tactics to employ for maximum fun!
■ New Update Contents
New Enemies, Characters, and Skills to Discover
Two new characters have been added for players to discover and unlock! Jack, and Fungus, enter the fray each with their own unique abilities and play style to try out! New items have been added that provide powerful new effects to aid players such as increased attack power, invulnerability, screen wipes and more. Additionally, the update adds an expanded Pathogen Database adding new challenging enemies to the mix for player to adapt and defend against.
New Game Mode: Vulnerability Defense System
Defeat pathogens and defend internal organs from infection as players mow down the microscopic hordes! This new mode shakes up the basic rules of the gameplay by tasking players to focus more on defending the organism’s health and weak points from invading pathogens. Survive long enough and players will go toe-to-toe with the boss-level infection! In this mode, player’s vitals are restored as they defeat more enemies and defending weak point will earn players powerful items, so go all-out to defeat them and keep the host healthy!
Refined User Interface and Graphics
Petit Petit Petit’s user interface design and overall graphics has been refined to make it easier for players to navigate levels and master the new game systems and other elements they face now and in the future.

Additional New Stages
In future updates and the full version of the game, new stages in the form of organs will be added. Each stage is set to include new elements such as new enemies and tricks that must be overcome. (Five stages are planned for the full version.)
Additional Characters and Combinations
New playable characters with unique abilities and new enemies that attack the map will be added. The new playable characters will have new attack skills, allowing for new strategies in combination with other skills.
