Vatn Squid was made by Terra Lauterbach for Game Jolt's first weekend jam over the course of 48 hours using GameMaker. The music was written by Jonathan Curry, and the drawing of Vatn was made by Chris Curry.
"Vatn Squid, created by the same [lady] that came first in the last Game Jolt competition along with an impressive stack of other achievements, is a strong bullet-hell offering featuring ten bosses, each with their own sprites, names (appearing before they start firing), and distinctly different bullet patterns. The game uses blend modes and high-quality sprites to great aesthetic merit, and its variety make it very popular, as is often the case with Lauterbach’s games. It was featured on Indie Games Blog quicker than Game Jolt managed to list the entries, another indication as to its quality." —Game Maker Blog
