    Invent the Wheel


    Reinvent the wheel

    A creative mini-game, in which the player draws a wheel (or something similar) that should reach the bottom of the slope as quick as possible.

    The game was developed for LudumDare 36. «Ancient Technology» was the theme. By the way, it was a favourite for our team among our previous 72-hour projects!

    Due to the continuously positivie community feedback, we decided to continue development (which is still work in progress).

    «Do not try to reinvent the wheel», they say. A saying which often proves quite useful. That's why we decided to give others the opportunity to reinvent the wheel!


    Draw a shape, let it roll, sit back and enjoy.
