Game Jam

Porcupine and Balloon Are Friends

Game website

This is a project that I worked on for Global Game Jam 2009.

The goal of the game is to reunite Porcupine with his friend, Balloon. Both traverse the maze simultaneously and collect powerups that affect their size and speed. I have gone more in depth about the design and implementation about the game in my blog.

I worked on the code of the game, implemented many of the functions including movement, special moves, object collection, and multiple view screens; and helped the others on the project in using YoYoGames Game Maker, which we used to develop the game.

The game has evolved quite a bit since its original implementation. The latest version available as of this writing is version 7.0. As stipulated by the Global Game Jam rules, the source code for the game is also made publically available.
