That's a pretty charming description, and a startlingly brutal game. The pickups just really help make it so much more chaotic :)
The Pit And The Double Pendulum
“I call to mind flatness and dampness; and then all is madness - the madness of a memory which busies itself among forbidden things.”
- Edgar Allen Poe
A submission for GMTK Game Jam 2020, your goal is to survive is the double pendulum, an incredibly erratic and unpredictable structure that swings wildly and out of control. The double pendulum has no predictible movements, instead you have to accept your lack of control of its motion and to embrace its chaos to survive.
Can you survive a mere 60 seconds with the pendulum?
Inspired by Atari 2600 games in the sense that the description talks a mean talk, but in reality it's just a square moving around.
