You’re riding a hoverboard. Leap off of hillsides and buildings and try not to run into anything. This gets easier with a cannon, so one has been provided. Watch out for incoming missiles at high altitudes!

We will be having another triangle game jam on November 9th thru the 11th. It will follow a similar format to the past few jams:
The theme will be decided by mad libs. More details to follow, but the idea is that everyone will contribute a list of 5 words in each of three categories, and we’ll generate random game names from them. Anyone who is inspired by one of the generated titles can pitch their idea, and we’ll whittle down the list and repeat the process.
Thanks to John Austin at Groundwork Labs and Adam Klein of American Underground for hosting us again this year.

You are the snake’s guardian, you must ensure that balance is maintained. Let enough creatures be eaten by the snake to ensure he doesn’t starve, but not enough that he frenzies and destroys everything. All the while outrunning him!

Control “Hardy the Hoop Snake, Jr., III, IV, and V” in his quest to eat as many chili dogs as possible while winding through ‘Catastrophe Canyon’
Tilting the Windows Phone helps Hardy the Hoop Snake dodge obstacles through the random level and eat chili dogs. Tilt the phone left or right to move Hardy horizontally. Tilt the phone up and have Hardy form a tighter hoop to go faster. Tilt the phone back to have Hardy unfurl to become a bigger slower hoop than can traverse over some obstacles. The attack will have Hardy whip his tail out to smack any hen in the way.
When playing again you will see that another hoop snake is there, it is a clone from your last playthrough. This hoopsnake will damage you if touched and can pick up powerups before you. The 5 best runs are saved and the scores combined from those runs will be the players ranking score. Those 5 best scores will always be on the track making you dodge them and race them for the powerups and collectibles.

Low Power is a game where in order to survive you must hasten your own death. You control a robot whose battery is constantly draining but there are valuable energy cores scattered throughout the level that will sustain your life. There are all kinds of dangerous environmental hazards that unless you enable your sensors/abilities (lights, shield, ground sensor, microphone) you’ll never survive. However enabling the different systems will drain your battery even faster.
