tricycles of death

by omaha - Jam Entry

Drive 4 tricycles at once!
Shoot your enemies!
Shoot yourself!

wasd or arrow keys to drive, enter/return to fire

xbox360 controller on macos? Fantastic!
plug it in, left joystick for steering, "A" button for the gas, "X" button for the brake, right trigger to fire


I ran out of time.

Rather than give up completely, I've tried to stitch the few pieces of my game that were complete into a quick bit of fun. Don't try to make sense of it.

lol, had fun controlling all four, but not much else to do. I could see this as a funny little thing with local multiplayer support.

Control multiple actors could work for a game XD Was fun playing around with this for a bit.

The game seems pretty close to having something pretty interesting. It's a shame you ran out of time. Better luck next time!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
