In Soviet Russia

[Download link]

This project has already been on my homepage for quite a while, but I have never presented it here. It's a little game that I have developed with three guys in an overnight contest at a game developer's conference last year (Devmania 2014). The topic was meme, we tried hard to come up with something as ridiculous as possible :D

Russia with its long and diverse history has been the focus of many games -- it offers a lot of storytelling potential. Not so In Soviet Russia: this crazy little game lets you steer a snowboarding stick figure through the depths of Siberia, in a hopeless attempt to evade the trolls and endure the unnerving soundtrack. At least, things get a bit more colorful when you collect some rainbows to jump (with space). Move with left/right arrow keys. And if you really need to, brake with the down arrow.





The technologies we used were SFML and Thor. Currently the game is available for Windows, if I find the time I'll try to compile it for Linux too (but I need to setup the OS again...). I was again at Devmania last weekend, where we've developed another game. I'll post the new project soon :)

Well what else could one expect from the topic "Meme". ;D

Weird but still kind of fun to play.

Linux?  :'(

Or is it open source so I could build it myself (could send you the binaries).

I'm glad you guys like it! :)

The game logic is 3D, but the graphics are not, as everything is made with SFML and Thor. The fake 3D effect is achieved only by 2D transforms, taking into account the perspective 8)

cool idea!
But, I'd be more happy having bears! Also, as for pickup items you might add balalaikas (musical instrument).
that's my 2 cents :-)
