Game

Race Plant is a game I made solo during CIGA Game Jam 2017 in Shenzhen, China. It's 48 hours game jam.

The theme is 

Game jam theme
Game jam theme

thus this game idea revolves around that.

Race Plant is not complete, but might have additional feature in the future. As of now, the game can offer complete playable gameplay with two players competing each other in a match to plant tree, water it, and collect its fruits for score. Who gets higher score within match's limited time wins!

See Code? section below if you want to see the code.

BEWARE: The game needs two XBox360 controllers to play in case of two players, or one controller in case you play alone (but the game is aimed for 2 players). The game doesn't support playing with keyboard on the same machine.

Key Control

XBox360 controller

  • B button to place down item on the ground, or if another player is nearby that item will be threw into hands of another player.
  • A button to restart the match when the current match is over

Keyboard

  • Z button to immediately restart the match even during the game
