Snakeman Tries His Best

A web game of well-intentioned failure

Snakeman Tries His Best is an arcade-style shoot-em-up that I created to teach myself Unity during Global Game Jam 2012. The player controls the immortal Snakeman, who has dedicated himself to saving malnourished human prisoners from their robotic oppressors. If only those squishy pink people weren’t so tasty…

Snakeman Tries His Best was voted the crowd favorite of Global Game Jam 2012 games created at the UC Santa Cruz jam site.

You can play Snakeman via the WebGL player, or try the Kongregate version for access to high (and low) scores lists!
