Got an actual snake model in the game last night. It’s not perfect, but at least it’s not a weird section of physics balls!

Now that Octodad: Dadliest Catch is all finished up we decided to have some fun and try our hands at a full team Ludum Dare. The only hard part about this is we had a crazy amount of pitches between the 7 of us, and it took about 3 hours to pick the one we wanted to go with. We’ll be sure to share our progress on that with you once we’ve got something to show, but for now here are some of the funnier or more interesting pitches that didn’t make the cut. – PTibz
