A few weeks ago I participated in the Idle Thumbs community’s bi-annual game jam. I talked about what it was last year in a post I made for Shoot That Pizza, so I won’t go into it in huge detail. Anyway, this time around I organised it, which was really fun! We got over 45 entries in total, and the games that were submitted were really excellent. I’m really happy with the way everything turned out.
For my jam entry, I made a game called Explode Mode. It’s a game about driving a hover tank with a wacky and novel control mechanic. It’s inspired by Katamari Damacy, but it’s a twin stick shooter?! That sounds confusing but it’s fun, I promise. You can download it for free right here:
The hosts of Idle Thumbs played my game on their Twitch stream! I think they enjoyed it?!
Explode Mode is on the featured section on the front page of itch.io!
Rock Paper Shotgun covered Explode Mode in their Free Loaders column!
