    Crush the Candy King Saga

    I made this entry for the rebellious candy jam… pretty sure it’s my best game so far!

    Crush the Candy King Saga
    Check it out!

    Made with: Unity, Inkscape, Sfxr, Autotracker

    Once, in a place not too different from ours, there was a people yearning for a life in peace. But they were ruled by a ruthless King who only loved one thing more than to see his people suffer. He loved candy. Most of all he loved playing a game he himself had “come up with”.

    Each time the King got three candies connected, he scored. And when things were going badly, he cheated. The people had to produce new candy at an alarming rate to satisfy their King.

    They had to resist.

    The people started removing candies on the playing field right under his nose. They even went as far as to condition the King to play faster when they pressed a special buzzer.

    The most daring used it quite often.

    To gain the most, they needed the King to loose quickly while removing as few candies as possible. It was after all they who had to produce them.

    Good luck, and save us all!

    UPDATE: NOW FIXED STUPID TRANSPARENT MENU THING THAT WAS BLOCKING PLAY…

    Give it a spin and let me know if you find it fun. Or if something could have been made better. Become the world record holder.

    Lesson learned from this blunder of uploading games in the middle of the night while very tired and quite stressed: Don’t do it.

      I love the “candy jam” and I think the great amount of people that participated is delivering the message. Also I appreciate that even the Ludum Dare community is active in this. Continue supporting the “right cause” against the “evil powerful companies”!!!
