Hyperactive Hamster Fusion

by Luin - Jam Entry

In hamsteria four clans engage in races and unite for victory!
Fuse and create deadly (if very temporary) alliances! Break every promise you make as the stakes get higher!

And remember: Hamsters are coming!

4player split screen racing action!
Xbox pads required:
- Fuse hamster balls (!!!) by rushing into other hamsters,
- Unfuse with A at any time, and dash left and right with the shoulder buttons.
The more you are in one ball, the faster you go!

A keyboard version will be soon available, for those who don't have any gamepad by their side!

Short video of the game, for those who can't start it!

anything with a hamster gets my vote! Well, it would, but unfortunately I don't have 4 pads. Would be kool to have other options of input (keys)

By the initial screen it it looked a lot nice but i could not play it because of the controls, maybe a single version on keyboard on the future ?

I don't have friends to play with me at this instant, but I just wanted to tell you I really dig the art style! :)

Have bunch of controllers including XBOX. On PS3 controller it is [Square] to start. Manage to play with 2 people - great fun. For the rest of the people without controllers - you miss all the fun. Almost all 5/5. In game visuals can be better considering it's a jam. Overall I'll play it more with my children again.

Nice idea with the fusion, but we fell out of your level sometimes. Keep going!

Thank you all for your feedbacks ! It's really too bad that a lot of you can't test the game, as you have to be at least 3 players or have a gamepad...
We are working a bit on other options of input, as well with a new LD that will let real strategy with fusion or unfusion ! I dunno where it will be there, but i hope very soon :D !

@MintArcade playing with your children...that's a huge achievement !! Thank you !

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
