This game started out as an entry for a competition known as Ludum Dare. The original version was made in 48 hours. After that it was polished and released on various platforms.
The competition gives a theme and then developers have to craft something based on that. In this particular instance the theme was “keep it alive”. I considered things which give life, and one of the first things that popped up in my mind were eggs. I knew the game had to be simple to be made in such little time so I thought of the simple games of my childhood, such as Donkey Kong.
The aim of the game is to control Eggbert and guide him around a forest picking up eggs and then keeping them out of harm’s way as he’s chased by hungry foxes.
The game is available on 3 platforms for free. On Itch.io it can be played directly in the browser. These are the platforms:
