A downloadable trainwreck for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

A horrible game for Make Something Horrible 2016. The jam theme is to combine a "type" + "genre," so this is a "platforming" + "race" game. Or a "fps" + ball-that-shoots-itself "simulator" game.

POSSIBLE EPILEPSY WARNING.

POSSIBLE MOTION SICKNESS WARNING.


Features:

  • Slightly unusual first-person gameplay.
  • 5 levels of probably increasing difficulty.
  • Extremely likely to induce motion sickness.
  • Unpleasant sounds with no volume control.
  • Awful color palettes.
  • Awkward controls.
  • Kinda glitchy physics.
  • When you quit you lose all progress.
  • The victory level has pancakes.


Controls:

  • WASD / arrows to roll.
  • Hold shift to roll faster.
  • Spacebar to jump.
  • Click to shoot forward, possibly through solid objects.


Win conditions:

In each level, find and touch the seven pancakes in less than five minutes.


Tips:

  • You can jump as long as you are in contact with another surface.
  • You can jump once more when you are no longer touching a surface, but you will lose the ability to roll until you touch something again.
  • You can see 90 degrees left & right -- use this to your advantage.
  • Do not try to beat the game.
  • Do not try to play the game.


Credits:

The "music" is derived from a Librivox recording of chapter 4 of Nietzsche's "Twilight of the Idols." The "musical" accompaniment is mostly just auto-generated MIDI from an algorithm trying to interpret this sample as music.

The pancakes texture and model are from NekoBolt's "Dessert Heaven" pack, via the Unity Asset Store.
