About

Demo

Game Description 

Your goal in each level is to use both sides of the character to move around and push objects off the stage with your stretchy body, the more objects you push off the level the more you can grow in size and length!

The game will have 15 unique levels, with 3 different game modes. These modes are;

Clean up! - push as many objects off the stage as you can.

Make a mess! - push as many objects onto the floor of the stage as you can.

Careful pushing - try to push one specific object off the stage without knocking off additional objects.

You simultaneously control both sides of the character, so you can move around by; controlling both ends, controlling one end and pulling the other end along, or share the controller with a friend and both control the character!


Stretch Goals

Available platforms 

Currently Grobe Rode will be released on PC, with backers being able to choose where they want to download it. (with possible console releases in the future.)

The Demo currently works with keyboard and the Xbox Controller.

Use WASD or the Right stick to control the green character, and use the Arrow keys to control the orange character.  The V key or left trigger can make you shrink while the B key or right trigger can make you grow.  Press the spacebar or A button to select menu options, and use P or the start button to pause the game.

Backer Rewards

Your name in the credits

Your name, or online handle, can be added to the game credits level. (this is a playable level containing the game credits and backer credits)

A copy of the game

You get a code to download the game on release, on your platform of preference. 

Design a Character

Design a Playable character head, these can be as simple or complex as you like. The character's you play as can be changed in the level select screen to any combination of unlocked characters. Since the base game characters are round, the designed characters will have to be vaguely spherical or can simply be posed in a ball shape in the game (for example a human shaped character being curled up into a ball).


Design a Level

Design your own level to be playable in the game, this can be done with a simple description for what you would like the level to be (for example a space station, overgrown with plant life.) or a drawing or sketch of your level idea. 

Risks and challenges

Due to the small development team, this game may take longer than normal to produce. The game will be finished and released, it may simply take slightly longer than the estimated release date.
