Snow Need To Rush!

It’s 3AM and I’m closing my little solo gamedev workshop. There were ups and there were downs and I probably would’ve been better off without a gamejam this weekend, but alas – what’s done it’s done and that “it” is a mini circular runner called “Snow Need To Rush“.




Here it is in action:

May cause dizziness, so sorry for that… I noticed that being an issue, but it was already too late. Hopefully mobile version will work better!

Good night and good luck finishing your entries!


Am I done? I think I am done!

What a ride. Such a relief that I finally submitted my little game mixed with fear that it will not be working or a sneaky hidden bug lurks to reveal itself after all ports are closed. But what’s done is done. My first LudumDare is done, that’s what’s done! I’m going to scream inside (almost 3AM – I don’t want to wake up anyone) for a while. Sorry, this is how gamedev affects me. Can’t explain.

So, my weird baby is called Hop Hop PlanetPlayable & downloadable in GameJolt.


Final version

How it started

Good luck everyone with finishing touches for their #LD48 entries/work on their awesome #LD72 projects!

Goodnight & snout out!


So, this is my “thing”

This jam was an emotional roller-coaster so far. I really really didn’t want this theme, had no decent ideas for it, got stuck in the simplest parts of development, lost mood, got demotivated after seeing what amazing things others are doing seemingly easily and was ready to quit a ton of times. Today is a bit better day and I started doing some art for that simple silly thing I made before. It still has no real purpose and I’m not sure if it fits the theme, but here it is. You jump around little planets, control their rotation if you so desire (no need for that) and avoid dangerous objects.

What next? I don’t really know. Going to add some simple tutorial and upload it for testing probably.


Please, be gentle

Good day, everyone!

We have never met before. My name is Aurimas, solo gamedev from Lithuania, better (un)known as SnoutUp. I like making little games and I like getting better at doing so. I really started getting in to game development about 6 months ago. Since then I made a couple of casual 2D games. They are okay, I guess.

Last time I chickened out because of lack of skills & even less confidence in them. I promised myself that I’ll come back and since then was leveling up by participating in smaller gamejams.

It’s time to beat the boss.

Themes are a bit scary,  hangover might happen, I can’t make SFX, but I’m excited. Let’s do this!
