“The Revolutionary Watermelon” is a platformer where you play as a watermelon trying to reach its freedom.
We developed the game during the AMaze Watermelon Game Jam 2017. Showing off the project at GameHappens festival 2017 we decided to let the visitors have a fresh experience and we replaced the keyboard with an actual watermelon, were was required to slap it in order to control the game.
- One button experience.
- 1 single short level!
- Eerie environment and soundtrack.
- Build your own controller. Visit our page on itch.io for more.
