It’s live, it’s alive and it’s got 10 tentacles.

James Cooper and Flo Heiss (that’s me) are proud to present an idea conceived at Pixar after we broke into their board room.



An interactive coming of age tale about a little squid with big ambitions. Born at the bottom of the deep dark ocean he dreams of a bigger world with sunshine, humans, music and ping pong tables.

It’s free to download for the iPad only from here
