Snake Race

For the last hour of the Global Game Jam we wanted to make a completely new game (in addition of the game we were already making). So Nathelie, Pepijn and myself formed a team and started thinking. The theme is transmission, so to us that meant conveying a message. Pepijn supplied us with wind-up snakes. I decided that they should have a race. A race to be the first one to transfer a message. Nathalie started making the game while Pepijn wrote the story behind the race. -Two princesses want to send a handsome prince (who is locked up in a tower) a secret message. The only way to do so is by sending a snake and attaching the message on the snake. The first snake (and message) to arrive will be read by the prince. The other one will be lost in transit.-
