Flappy Beasts

We finally started work on our MiniLD#49 (non-human player) submission, it is an underwater Flappy Bird clone for 1-4 players.

The playable characters are grotesque fishes attempting to avoid the grasping tentacles of predatory cephalopods.


The fish expand or deflate when the button is depressed / released, tapping the button makes the fish incrementally rise in the water, holding the button forces the fish to expand making it move more slowly through the water.

We have the basic gameplay implemented (excluding the scoring system) but need to finish, texture, and animate the fish model and add the menu and additional sounds.

We put a short gameplay video on YouTube, the link is Flappy Beasts, we will probably make the fish larger (and inflate more) than the placeholder spheres.

    Thank you, we stole the tentacles from another game we are working on.
