Minimalistic Potato

I wasn’t planning on doing Ludum Dare this weekend, but when I saw that the bonus theme was potatoes, I had to participate. After a little less than an hour of work and many hours of waiting for Google Play, I’m proud to present Minimalistic Potato.


Minimalistic Potato tells the heartbreaking story of Spudnik, a lost potato. Spudnik is stuck in a dystopia of white. An insipid plain of nothing. A place that lacks color, emotion, and all that is interesting. But when it seems like all is lost, an external force (your finger/mouse) flings across the void! It takes a second, but he slowly follows your finger with curiosity. Pixel after pixel. Movement after movement. And when Spudnik reaches where the external force stopped, he freezes in fear, lost. But with that fear comes the tiniest sliver of hope. Hope that there is something out there better than this. That there is a world filled with color, with hope, and with triumph. But for now he is stuck in this dystopia. And only you can guide him. Only you can teach him to potate.

After working on the engine for a few hours, we finally added something tangible. We are brilliant artists.
