My entry for Ludum Dare 48, a simple game with two levels where you try to escape the Lava coming towards you!

Swap Die Repeat

Swap Die Repeat cover art

For my first game jam! A 2D puzzle platformer made with Godot, swap characters until you die! (but try not to)

Cliff Hanger

Only Spaceship

Only Spaceship's cover art

A rushed out game that is kinda wonky and broken. A spaceshooter where you survive as long as its not unfair.
